Psalm 49-Wealth is not all it’s cracked up to be
The Psalms teach us many things. They are considered part of the word of God according to Jesus (Luke 24:44) and many of the things written about the Messiah come from the Psalms. They give us wisdom and understanding in important areas of our life.
Last Sunday (May 20th), the morning lesson came from Psalm 49. It shares with us a proper perspective on life and how we are not to be led astray by chasing after riches nor are we to be worried by the oppression that may come from those who do.
Those chasing wealth may think they can reach for their wallet or checkbook in the judgement but they will not find enough even if they own the whole world. (Mt 16:26)
Remember this: Whatever you have in money or whatever you could accumulate in money will never, ever come close to the price that your soul is worth. Therefore coveting wealth is the errand of the fool and the wise man will put his priorities on serving God.
