Meditations from Saint Benedict’s Monastery, St. Joseph, Minnesota
We are reminded in Psalm 37 of our place in God’s creation. We often wonder why evil prevails, but the human justice system is inconsequential in the long run. We patiently wait for the justice of the Lord.
Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong;
for like the grass they will wither, like young plants they will wilt.
Trust in the Lord and do good; settle down and be at peace.
Take delight in the Lord, who satisfies your heart.
Commit your life to the Lord. Trust God to act on your behalf, to make your integrity shine forth and your justice be bright as noon.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret about the success of evil schemers.
For those who are evil will be destroyed, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.
