Mar. 10. Voice of Wisdom

Ps. 37:1-40

This psalm of David made a bold contrast between the rewards of the wicked and the righteous. It is natural for a righteous person to become discouraged and possibly envious when he sees the earthly prosperity and power of a wicked person. One may fall, but the hand of the Lord will lift him up. Throughout the verses of this poem, the psalmist urged patience and trust among God’s people. The riches of this world are only temporary, but the inheritance of the righteous is eternal. As David concluded his psalm, he stated, “The future of the wicked shall be cut off. But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord…”
