The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish (Proverbs 10:28).
If we could see the other side – our eternal mansion – what would we do differently? Words in Revelation 21 and John 14 describe an awesome place prepared for the faithful of God. Thus, we press on toward the goal (Philippians 2:12-14), keep on keeping on (Hebrews 6:1) with trust and assurance that God is faithful and will deliver as promised.
When heaven becomes a reality – oh, what gladness! What a wonderful homecoming with all the faithful of all ages! Forever to enjoy the paradise of glory!
Yet, Solomon also warns that the wicked will receive their reward – perish in eternal punishment. Compare the two – make your choice.
