“Let not thy heart envy sinners; But be thou in the fear of Jehovah all the day long: For surely there is a reward; And thy hope shall not be cut off.”
Concerning the blessed hope of holy religious faith, mortals need all the encouragement they can find; and here the sacred text thunders the message, “Surely there is a reward.”
The hope of heaven is a reality. Christ said, “In my Father’s house, there are many mansions.
If it were not so, I would have told you.” (John 14:2).
This being true, why then, should any Christian envy the ephemeral joys of sinners, purchased by them at the price of eternal death?
