A Meditation: On Psalm 37:20 // Envy Not The Fat of The Lambs //

by Matheus Yuhlung

“But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away” – Psalm 37:20

From the false sense of security to companion and happiness and joy; earthly wealth seems to provide just that and nothing more. What happens to such wealth? It withers like the beauty of the grasses in due time.

Such wealth can be compared to the fat of lambs; which just as was consumed during sin sacrifices will be consumed in God’s wrath at the time of the judgment day.

Dear fellow Christian brothers and sisters let us not get enamored by the beauty of such mortal wealth that the enemies of the Lord have acquired; ours is the kingdom that God is bringing with Him – a city of gold – an imperishable wealth for eternity.
