Proverbs 23:17-18

When we hear of scandals like #MeToo and various controversies that surround celebrities, business leaders, politicians, and even high-profile clergy members, it seems like the people with the most loose morals and the most corrupt character are the ones who attain the highest heights of power, while those who faithfully follow God and do His will are left behind. It is easy for this to incite envy in many Christians. But this passage tells us that we should not begrudge the ungodly because of their prosperity. Instead of chasing after material gain like the worldly do, we should focus ourselves on being God-fearing people. If we stay grounded in God, we will know that we should always make the morally right decisions, regardless of whether it benefits us or not.
