The Wicked Have Joy for a Moment

Today I read Job 20 where Zophar talks about the life of the wicked.  He talks about how the wicked may have joy or triumph as he calls it for a moment.  And while this may not seem like the case for those who do not do that which is right in this life, if we remember that this life is but a fleeting moment in our lives, as we too are without beginning and without end, we will live forever and never die after this life is over.  So if we are wicked, our triumph will seem short indeed compared to the eternal glory of the righteous.  We will rue the day we did not follow the commandments when we realize what reward could have been ours and we sold it for a fleeting moment of wickedness.  Joy for a moment indeed.  Until tomorrow.
