Riches

Psalm 49:16-17 Do not be overawed when a man grows rich, when the splendor of his house increases, for he will take nothing with him when he dies, his splendor will not descend with him.

This is so true Lord.

We come (born) empty

We leave (die) empty

Riches do not matter
Riches do not define one's life, one's character
Riches can distract
Riches can cause grief and strife
Riches can tear apart
Riches never satisfy, we always want more
Riches do not bring contentment
Riches do not bring salvation

Only God can satisfy
Only God can save
Only God can fulfill our deepest desires
Only God can bring us true contentment

God does not wear out
God does not break
God does not rust or mold
God does not have to be replaced
God is eternal, everlasting

We can take him when we die
We don't leave him behind
He is with us always
He is our splendor, our riches, our treasure

Don't be overawed with man and his riches

Be overawed with God and his majesty

Help me to live like this Lord Jesus for your glory
