Eternal Rewards Vs. Instant Gratification

Today I read Psalms 5 where David states that the Lord hates all workers of iniquity.  This is not quite true.  The Lord does not hate anyone, we are all His children and He loves us as a parent loves their child.  But He does hate iniquity.  He cannot stand sin with the least degree of allowance.  It breaks His heart when His children choose the path of sin and unhappiness.  I think if we knew what we were really giving up by sinning we would be a lot less quick to sin and do that which is wrong.  But that is why we are here, to choose for ourselves what it is we want.  Do we want immediate rewards or rewards that can last for an eternity?  What do we really want out of life?  Do we want to follow a being wiser than all the world's wisdom?  Or follow the flawed logic of those only a few years older than ourselves?  The choice is ours.  Until tomorrow.
