Don’t Envy The Wicked

Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers! For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Psalms 37:1-4

“The desires of your heart” would entail the people and things that we need, not the things that we want.

Evil men covet and scheme to take what they want. Consequently, they make many enemies, most significantly God himself, and quickly perish.

Those who trust in God follow the plan even when they cannot see the way forward. God blesses them for it over the long run and certainly in eternity, if not in this life.
