The Hope of the Righteous #672

28  The hope of the righteous will be gladness, but the expectation of the wicked will perish. 29  The way of the Lord is strength for the upright, but destruction will come to the workers of iniquity. (Proverbs 10:28–29, NKJV)

The Christian’s hope brings gladness to the heart, a joy that the world cannot take away. In vivid contrast, those who choose to live in sin never truly obtain what they expect, for everything in this world will perish. Remember, sin never delivers what it promises. Walking the path of the Lord gives strength and stability to life. Those who build their lives on the sands of iniquity never find true joy and peace; only a facade that vanishes into eternal destruction. Lay up treasures in heaven, not on the earth.
