I was reminded this morning by a wonderful Psalm to not set my heart on other people's "things" but to keep my heart totally devoted to the Lord. He alone knows what's best for me.
Psalm 73:1-3, 16-17, 25-26, 28 (ESV)
Truly God is good to Israel,
to those those who are pure in heart.
But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled,
my steps had nearly slipped.
For I was envious of the arrogant when I saw
the prosperity of the wicked.
But when I thought how to understand this,
it seemed to me a wearisome task,
until I went into the sanctuary of God,
then I discerned their end.
Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides You.
My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
But for me it is good to be near God;
I have made the Lord God my refuge,
that I may tell of all Your works.
