Righteousness is not an easy path to follow,
To live in righteousness, your life might filled with sorrows,
Sorrows that come from the enemy of righteousness, wickedness,
Sorrows come simply because righteousness could not agree with wickedness,
Even the humble King David cried, “How long, O LORD? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? 2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and every day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me? (Psalm 13:1-2)
When you choose righteousness, your will know who are your true friends,
Because of fear, your friendship ends,
“How long, O Lord? How far, O Lord? That this path of righteousness will end?
So that I can meet You on the other end”
Why wickedness appear in the path of righteousness?
Why righteousness did not appear in the path of wickedness?
Why righteous men must suffer and wicked prosper although it is just temporally?
It is understandable that suffering because of righteousness is for the sake of Christ,
Perhaps, the sorrow would not be heavy if it is caused by people who do not know Christ.
Instead of going through the sorrow together, why people who knew Christ want to cause sorrow to their brothers and sisters more than those who do not know Christ wanted to?
How long, O Lord? How far should I walk?
