Don’t Envy Wicked People

Daily "Words of Wisdom" from Apply Wisdom.com

“Do not become envious of wicked people” (Proverbs 24:19).  

The heroes of this world are not going to make it into the Kingdom of God. The heroes of Hollywood, the political leaders of this world, the Pope, and other wicked people might have power and money and success in this world, but they are not going to enter the kingdom of God.  The inspired Bible reveals a truth which most people seem to ignore: the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:9). This concept is repeated so many times throughout the bible that it is impossible to dismiss.

So don’t envy wicked people and don’t make them your heroes.  This world is quickly passing away and those who are first in the world will be last in the next.
