Today we’ll read Deuteronomy chapter 27, Acts chapter 13, and Psalm 73, from the New International Version.
May God bless the reading of His Word.
In Psalms 73 today, we see a man who at first seems to be complaining that doing right and living a good life isn’t worth the effort. He suffered, while the unrighteous seemed to have it easy. But then, when he entered the sanctuary, he realized that their ultimate destiny was ruin. Have you ever thought that it just doesn’t seem fair? You look around and see people that you know do not live for God, and they have money, power, influence, fame and all the rest, while you struggle to make ends meet. Maybe you have physical challenges, or people look at you like you’re stupid to believe in a God you cannot see.
My friend, hang in there. We are here on this earth for only a moment in time. Eternity is a long, long, long time. I will gladly sacrifice the supposed comforts of wealth now, to live in fellowship and the presence of the Lord forever. I have no doubt that it *will* be worth it. Run the race all the way to the finish line!
