2 Chronicles 21:20
And departed without being desired.
The undesirableness of a wicked man’s life
I. Such life is not desirable on its own account. Two facts will show this.
1. His highest enjoyments are unsatisfactory and brief. It is impossible for us to be satisfied in any condition where we have not a consciousness of right, a sense of Divine favour, a hope of a bright future, and the pulsation of holy loves. Observe--
(1) How foolish to aim at such a life as this.
(2) How foolish to envy such a life as this.
2. That the longer it continues the greater becomes his responsibility.
II. Such a life is not desirable on account of others.
1. It renders no real good to others.
2. It produces incalculable mischief. In the spiritual, as in the material, like begets like. “One sinner destroyeth much good.” (Homilist.)
