Reflections on Psalm 37–Part One

Fret (3x) not yourself because of evildoers – Psalm 37:1

When wrongdoers do wrong but prosper and by contrast you do right and do not prosper NOW, it’s easy to join the wrongdoers by fretting and fretting tends only to evil.

But the Lord calls us to respond differently. Trust, do good, delight in the Lord, commit your way to the Lord, trust (repeated), rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him.

The wrongdoers will wither quickly.

The humble *will inherit the land and will delight themselves in abundant prosperity.

It will be worth the wait. Do not trade in a vapor of prosperity for eternity.

The LORD knows the days of the blameless, and their heritage will remain forever; – Psalm 37:18
