Chapter-a-Day Psalm 37

Corporate_ladder"Don’t bother with those who climb the ladder, who elbow their way to the top." Psalm 37:7b (TM)

There will always be someone who has more than you do. Always.

There will always be someone who looks better than you do, got more breaks than you did, lucked out more often than you ever will, and ended up with far more than they deserved.

Life is not fair. Bad folks often win and good folks often lose.

Happiness is not in having more of what we don’t posses, but in the contentment of fully enjoying every good thing with which God has already blessed us.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Psalm 37”

  1. 7 Quiet down before God,
    be prayerful before him.
    Don’t bother with those who climb the ladder,
    who elbow their way to the top.
    Yesterday we had open mike time at church and people shared how God has answered prayer. Something that God is teaching me is to quiet myself and listen. Twice last week, God prompted me to either call or ask someone if I could pray for them. In both cases, God’s timing was impeccable and I was able to support those people. I know that I need to listen more.
