Understanding at Last!

The litter I picked up was from a college math class. Both sides were practically covered with calculations, figures, equations, etc.

It was algebra—I think. Just because it didn’t make sense to me doesn’t mean it didn’t make sense.

At first, he couldn’t make sense of it.

Psalm 73 is a personal account of a man who was deeply troubled by life’s unfairness. “. . . my feet came close to stumbling . . . . I was envious of the arrogant as I saw the prosperity of the wicked.”

His initial conclusion: “Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure . . . for I have been chastened every morning.”

But then he got it!

After realizing that God will destroy the wicked but bring the righteous to glory, his final conclusion was: “Surely God is good . . . to those who are pure in heart!” (vv, 2-3, 13-14, 1).
