“Envy Them Not!”
Psalm 73: 3, 4: “For I was envious of the arrogant, as I saw the prosperity of the wicked. For there are no pains in their death, and their body is fat.” Important lesson from Asaph: There’s no need to envious of the wicked and arrogant over their death – because their after-death experience is a real bummer! Cast down to destruction, destroyed in a moment, utterly swept away (vv. 18, 19) – Are you really going to be jealous over that? Get back to the bottom line: Those far from God will perish, but the nearness of God is for our good (vv. 27, 28).
