Something to think about: These verses from Psalm 37 are far more profound than they might seem at a quick glance. When we read them carefully, we see they stress an increasing dedication to God and its increasing benefits. The verses tell us that if we "trust" and "do good" – have basic faith and works – we will have our physical needs met. They then show that if we go further and "delight" in God, He will meet our emotional needs – the "desires of our hearts." Finally, if we totally commit ourselves to God and His way, He will fulfill our ultimate spiritual goals and aspirations – "your righteous reward." It's worth asking: where in this progression of increasing dedication and increasing blessings are we?
