Hope That Won't End

Do not long for what sinners have. But always show great respect for the LORD. There really is hope for you in days to come. So your hope will not be cut off. (Proverbs 23:17-18 NIRV)

Father, it’s so hard not to compare and see how my neighbor, who doesn’t care about You, thrives and prospers at every turn. First, help me to be content with what I have because I know that the world’s view of success is not the same as Yours. Then, help me remember that at any moment, her prosperity could vanish, and she’d sink fast. Help me be a light so that she might come to know the source of hope – You. All praise be to You. Amen.
