Envious

When you are envious, pray this psalm to God, expressing honestly your deepest feelings.

Psalm 73

No doubt about it! God is good --

     good to good people, good to the good-hearted.

But I nearly missed it,

     missed seeing his goodness.

I was looking the other way,

     looking up to the people

At the top,

     envying the wicked who have it made,

Who have nothing to worry about,

     not a care in the whole wide world.

While several strategies for reopening the world are being discussed, I encourage you—the people of God everywhere—to allow this season to be a formative one during which you can make new discoveries about God and increase your faith. Use this time to embark on a life of prayer, a life of study, and a life of action—involvement in the community.”
