Why you don't have to be afraid of bad news...


1             Praise the Lord.
Blessed are those who fear the Lord,
    who find great delight in his commands.
Their children will be mighty in the land;
    the generation of the upright will be blessed.
Wealth and riches are in their houses,
    and their righteousness endures forever.
Even in darkness light dawns for the upright,
    for those who are gracious and compassionate 
    and righteous.
Good will come to those who are generous and 
    lend freely,
    who conduct their affairs with justice.
Surely the righteous will never be shaken;
    they will be remembered forever.
They will have no fear of bad news;
    their hearts are steadfast, trusting in 
    the Lord.
Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear;
    in the end they will look in triumph on their 
    foes.
They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor,
    their righteousness endures forever;
    their horn will be lifted high in honor.
10 The wicked will see and be vexed,
    they will gnash their teeth and waste away;
    the longings of the wicked will come to nothing
This word of hope and encouragement is from God via Psalm 112 and is for those who "fear the LORD" and those who "find great delight in his commands" (see verse 1 above).
