The psalmist Asaph said, “Truly God is good . . . to those who are pure in heart” (Psalm 73:1). Do you believe that? He went on to say, “But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled, my steps had nearly slipped. For I was envious of the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked” (v. 2-3).
Sound familiar? Have you ever wondered why the wicked strike it rich while the righteous suffer? Israel’s faithful worship leader voiced his struggle with the apparent incongruity of life. Good things were happening to bad people. So, what’s up with that?
Unable to make sense of it all, Asaph’s turning point came when he entered the sanctuary of God and gained His perspective.
