Job 15:20 KJV
The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor.
All the responses that have come from Job’s friends suggest that, at least, evil never goes unrewarded. This is something I believe the whole world is aware of. Everyone knows.
When I watch african movies or even hear true life stories of people who mete out wickedness to their fellows, I wonder whether the perpetrators ever knew that simple fact of life. Even children know when they do something wrong, their body language betrays them right away.
Even if we get away with such deeds in the present, we shan’t in the near future. No wonder Eliphaz states in verse 32-33 “…and his branch shall not be green…and shall cast off his blossom like the olive.”
God encoded a reward system into it when He formed the foundations of this earth. It is a natural law you cannot change. Neither should you live as though it wasn’t there. Everything and every deed’s got its reward. Live wisely!
Have a blessed Friday.
