Have you ever been passed over for a promotion by someone who doesn’t deserve it? They slack off at work and cut corners, hurting their coworkers in the long run. However, they somehow have enough charm to sweet-talk their way to the top. It can be infuriating. Psalm 73 is analogous to moments like that. The author was tempted to adopt the behavior of those who get rewarded in the short term. We need to guard our hearts against thinking like that.
