Here is what God gave me today:
26 For to the man that pleaseth him God giveth wisdom, and knowledge, and joy; but to the sinner he giveth travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him that pleaseth God. This also is vanity and a striving after wind.
Eccl 2:26 (ASV)
You have to feel pity for the sinner, sorry, for the “unbeliever” , after all we are all sinners, but really, we would have the same punishment if Jesus hadn’t died FOR us. If he hadn’t paid our sins we would be in the same place, but since he did, for us! He can do it again, if the unbeliever asked Jesus into his or her heart, instead of punishment they would desire to please God, and would there for please him, and be given wisdom and the perfect peace that God gives to all his children, but of course, we still have “troubles” which God gives us to test our faith, just look at Job! he lost all his children, money, live stock, pure skin (he got boils, OUCH) Job had it bad, but God pulled him through, and he literally got double of all of it! (he had another 10 children, when you add the ten he had in heaven, it equals 20) so, in finishing, Please God and you get wisdom and peace and knowledge, displease him, and you get punishment.
You are loved!
