It’s pretty easy to look around and see people who seem to be doing better than we are…more money, fewer bills, easier kids, easier job, easier life.
Hmmm, maybe yes, maybe no.
Sometimes our view is not the truth and we really aren’t clued into the reality of their lives. We are not to look from side-to-side but rather up. Our eyes are to be on Jesus not on those around us.
“Do not let your heart envy sinners, but always be zealous for the fear of the Lord. There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.” Proverbs 23:17-18
Our hope is in Jesus, not riches, not an easy life. We have a future with Him and that is worth waiting for.
Thank You, Jesus, that we have a future with You. No matter what we have or don’t have here, we have You. That is enough.
