[Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers! 2For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb.] 3Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. 4Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. —Psalm 37:1-4

“This is a great Psalm for talking about how to fight envy because it starts off with the main point of “Don’t be envious.” Then I count six solid reasons for why not to be envious in the first 11 verses. What I’m trying to do tonight is give you an example of how to fight the fight of faith in your devotions.” — John Piper on Psalm 37
