PSALMS 37:1-2

“Do not fret…”

“in no time they’ll shrivel like grass clippings”
Do not fret because of those who are evil
or be envious of those who do wrong;

for like the grass they will soon wither,
like green plants they will soon die away. (NIV)
Don't bother your head with braggarts or wish you could succeed like the wicked.

In no time they'll shrivel like grass clippings
and wilt like flowers cut in the sun. (MSG)

The news, social media, real life – we see evil around us and we are distressed. How can we not fret? It doesn’t seem like the evil-doers are “withering”. It seems like they are flourishing.

Sometimes, I simply have to trust that God will do what he says. They will be punished for their evil. Whether I see that happen or not – and in the meantime I mustn’t fret. I must strive to overcome evil with good.
