How do you feel when someone who cheats or lies seems to be successful? Do you feel jealous? Do you wish you could do those wrong things and not get caught?
God doesn’t want you to feel like that. He wants you to focus on doing what is right. Verses 3 and 4 of our Bible Reading today say, “So trust the Lord and do good. Live on your land and be dependable. Enjoy serving the Lord, and he will give you whatever you ask for.” That means if we trust and obey God, He will bless us. How will God bless us? He will give us success and rewards that last forever!
When someone does wrong things to earn success, that success ends when they die. True success happens when we believe in Jesus as our Savior and live for Him. That success goes on forever.
Do you want to be successful? Trust God to lead you every day.
