Proverbs 23:17

Do not let your heart envy sinners, but always be zealous for the fear of the LORD.

When I think of envying sinners, my mind goes to the movie industry.  As a culture, we have given movie stars hero/heroine status.  Even the lesser known stars make 10 times a year what most of us make.  They have cars, jewels, travel opportunities, and spending money in abundance. What they don’t have is love, faithfulness, joy, the peace of being known by God, and having Him watch over them.  Fame is fleeting.  Wealth can be gone in an instant.

The future is secure, and the hope of life is a sure thing for those who belong to God.
