Who will vindicate us?


Some days it makes a person wonder if it pays to be good. You do something good; people take advantage of you and even try to destroy your reputation. This is not a new phenomenon. Over 3,000 years ago the Psalmist complained,

Those who repay my good with evil
lodge accusations against me,
    
though I seek only to do what is good. – Psalm 38:20

What to do? We can continue to do good and leave the judgment to others. The Psalmist offered this plea:

Lord, do not forsake me;
   
do not be far from me, my God. 
Come quickly to help me,
    
my Lord and my Savior. – Psalm 38:21-22

Sometimes we just have to live by what is right and believe that God will be with us and vindicate us. – Ron Friesen
