How simple life would be if good things happened to good people and bad things to bad? But that’s not how life works. You or I could eat well, run marathons and never smoke, and you can still end up with a rare cancer. Just ask my friend Michele.
Truth is, life is hard. Stuff happens. Which is why Jesus taught about the upside-down kingdom, where “You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.”
This psalm responds to the life-long question of why the wicked prosper and the good suffer. This situation is only temporary, King David concludes.
Today, may you find strength and shelter in God, no matter what you’re facing.
