Proverbs 23:17-18 is an excellent passage to chew on today. “Let not your heart envy sinners.” In other words, “Do not let Hollywood charm you.” The passage continues with, “continue in the fear of the Lord all the day.” Make pleasing the Lord your top priority. Why? Because, “surely there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off.” Make fearing the Lord your top priority because the reality is that this vapor like life is going to be over very, very soon. And when this life is over one’s eternal destiny will be determined by how much value he or she placed on following in the fear of the Lord!
