Why does God allow good things to happen to bad people?
Reading: Exodus 12:14-13:16, Mt 20:29-21:22, Psalm 25:16-22, Prov 6:12-15
“May integrity & honesty protect me, for I put my hope in you.” Psalm 25:21
David cried out to the Lord in psalms 25:16-22 – he put his trust and hope in the Lord saying that his character of integrity and honesty would protect him as he followed after the Lord and asked for his protection.
At times it may seem that we are not “rewarded” for our good characteristics – yet others are rewarded and are just evil – see “Why does God allow good things to happen to bad people ~ //www.gotquestions.org/good-things-bad-people.html

Father I thank you for your grace and forgiveness. Help me to live a life of integrity and honesty. Let me discern that which is right from wrong. Help me to know you will and do your work. In Jesus name, protect me, guide me, go before me, amen.
