Sometimes we are very possessive or protective of things that tread on the lines of wickedness. We sometimes entertain ourselves with evil. We listen to music, watch movies, read books, and watch TV that glorifies wickedness. Those things will not profit us. We will not gain from them. On the other hand, righteousness will deliver us from death. Think about what in your life is wicked and what is righteous. Focus on the things that you will profit from.
And we pray:
LORD, You Love the righteous and You despise wickedness. Thank You for being a righteous God, and not a God Who loves war, murder, and death. You are truly good, and only You can truly satisfy our hearts. Make me righteous like You are righteous. Help me to love, need and want righteousness and hate wickedness like You do. In Jesus’ name. Amen
