Proverbs 23:17

Do not let your heart envy sinners,But be zealous for the fear of the Lord all the day;


A sinner might appear “successful” according to the standards of the world, but the bible makes us understand in the book of 1 John 2:16, that everything in the world are the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.

The world has nothing of eternal value to offer anyone, hence the preacher exclaims in Ecclesiastes 1:2, “vanity of vanities, all is vanity”.

As believers, we should not envy sinners or their possessions, because as the world passes away, they and their possessions will perish, but whoever fears the Lord and does His Will, will abide with God forever (1 John 2:17), and their hope will not be cut off (Proverbs 23:18).
