Trusting Money is Foolish (Psalm 49:1-20)

Louie Giglio: How Great is Our GodListen to this, all you nations; listen, all you who live on earth. Listen, both great and small, rich and poor together. What I say is wise, and my heart speaks with understanding. I will pay attention to a wise saying; I will explain my riddle on the harp.

Why should I be afraid of bad days? Why should I fear when evil men surround me? They trust in their money and brag about their riches. No one can buy back the life of another. No one can pay God for his own life, because the price of a life is high. No payment is ever enough. Do people live forever? Don't they all face death?

See, even wise people die. Fools and stupid people die and leave their wealth to others. Their graves will always be their homes. They will live there from now on, even though they named places after themselves. Even rich people do not live forever; like animals, people die.

This is what will happen to those who trust in themselves and their followers who believe them. Like sheep, they must die, and death will be their shepherd. Honest people will rule over them in the morning, and their bodies will rot in a grave far from home. But God will save my life and will take me from the grave.

Don't be afraid of rich people because their houses are more beautiful. They don't take anything to the grave; their wealth won't go down with them. Even though they were praised when they were alive - and people may praise you when you succeed - they will go to where their ancestors are. They will never see light again. Rich people with no understanding are just like animals that die. Psalm 49:1-20 www.Acknowledgement.com

The Happy Home (Psalm 128:1-4)

Happy are those who respect the Lord and obey him . You will enjoy what you work for, and you will be blessed with good things. Your wife will give you many children, like a vine that produces much fruit. Your children will bring you much good, like olive branches that produce many olives. This is how the man who respect the Lord will be blessed. Psalm 128:1-4 www.Acknowledgement.com
