Daily Verse: “When the wicked dies, his hope will perish, and the expectation of wealth perishes too.” Prov. 11:7

Wicked expectations perish.

Evil plots don’t win, although sometimes it seems like they do. In a world wrought with heartache, people doing and saying horrendous things to each other, the pain appears palpable sometimes.

But the things of this world don’t last. Evil intentions don’t win. Following in Christ gives us the hope of eternal life to come. Worldly wealth doesn’t stop death from coming. And U-Hauls don’t follow anyone into eternity. We leave the earth with what we had at its entrance: nothing.

Christ in us gives us peace on earth. Our treasure waits for us in heaven, not here. No mind can genuinely imagine the afterlife; we all have our interpretations of heaven. Our best day on earth can’t compare to our first day in heaven.

Without Jesus, people don’t have the same hope. One decision turns life around. Trusting and following Christ changes lives, one decision at a time.

Lord, forgive us for missed opportunities to share Christ’s love. Give us Your vision for others, helping us see them as You do. Let us love well today. IJNIP. Amen
