The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: but the righteous hath hope in his death.
Those that have turned their back on God spend their entire lives in discontentment, discouragement, disappointment, and very often in disease. In life, no true joy can be found for the wicked, and in facing death their hopelessness continues.
But, for those that place their trust in God in life, not only can they find true joy now, but when facing death hope and joy remain.
Are you truly enjoying your life? Do you look death in the face and experience fear and dread or have hope?
