The question of why those that do evil seem to prosper is obviously an age old question as Job addresses it in his eight speech. Psalm 73 is one of my favorite Psalms and addresses the same question. As we said a few days ago, your theological perspective on suffering and this temporary life will help answer the question. It is true that people who oppose God and go after the lusts of this world will have an easier life filled with more temporal pleasures that those that follow in Christ’s steps. The time will come when both will receive their just reward. We should not worry about the sufferings of the day or the ease of the wicked for our redeemer lives.
