Rewards for the righteous

Trouble pursues the sinner,

but the righteous are rewarded with good things.

Proverbs 13:21 (from

A thought: I have never gained so much from my sin that it beats the negative results. I want to be holy in my work and life, looking to a Saviour who went before me and saved me.

A prayer: Jesus, you paid no heed to the shame of the cross, because you saw ahead to the joy of heaven. Help me seek you. Amen
