Almost every day of our lives, we will encounter those who seem to have no morals or dignity. It could be on t.v., or in person, or through contact online. We as Christians are held to a higher moral standard in this life than those who are not believers. So how do we handle it? The Bible outlines several ways to deal with these encounters, and I personally like the instruction given to us in Psalm 37: "Do not fret because of evildoers, be not envious toward wrongdoers. For they will wither quickly like the grass and fade like the green herb. Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He will do it. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light and your judgment as the noonday. Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him; do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who carries out wicked schemes. Cease from anger and forsake wrath; do not fret; it leads only to evildoing. For evildoers will be cut off, but those who wait for the Lord, they will inherit the land. Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more; and you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there. But the humble will inherit the land and will delight themselves in abundant prosperity." (Psalm 37:1-11) God knows and God sees what happens to us. He may allow certain things to take place that are unpleasant or uncomfortable at the time, but they are meant to make us into the children that He asks us to become.
