Why do bad people have it so good? Why do con artists make it big?


Is this how you feel sometines?

I came across it here.

Jeremiah 12 (The Message)

1-4 You are right, O God, and you set things right. I can’t argue with that. But I do have some questions:
Why do bad people have it so good?
Why do con artists make it big?

You planted them and they put down roots.
They flourished and produced fruit.
They talk as if they’re old friends with you,
but they couldn’t care less about you.
Meanwhile, you know me inside and out.
You don’t let me get by with a thing!
Make them pay for the way they live,
pay with their lives, like sheep marked for slaughter.
How long do we have to put up with this—
the country depressed, the farms in ruin—
And all because of wickedness, these wicked lives?
Even animals and birds are dying off
Because they’ll have nothing to do with God
and think God has nothing to do with them.

So why do they prosper?

Does God have nothing to do with them?

I think that although they prosper here and now, they are damming there soul.

Jesus talked about the different types of sheep and that the Shepard could tell them apart, or at harvest time is done can remove the weeds from the corn.

These people are weeds they destroy what is good and healthy and they will pay when God’s harvest happens.

I know that is little consolation to those who suffer now  but remember that God loves you and even though some of us struggle and suffer in many ways He is always there for us in many ways. 

As the first part says, You are right, O God, and you set things right. I can’t argue with that.


Lord I  pray that we will see your justice. That those who follow you will be redeemed and those who think only for themselves will fall.
