Evening Meditation 4-14-17

They trust in their wealth
    and boast of great riches.
Yet they cannot redeem themselves from death[a]
    by paying a ransom to God.
Redemption does not come so easily,
    for no one can ever pay enough
to live forever
    and never see the grave.

10 Those who are wise must finally die,
    just like the foolish and senseless,
    leaving all their wealth behind.
11 The grave[b] is their eternal home,
    where they will stay forever.
They may name their estates after themselves,
12     but their fame will not last.
    They will die, just like animals.
13 This is the fate of fools,
    though they are remembered as being wise.[c] Interlude

14 Like sheep, they are led to the grave,[d]
    where death will be their shepherd.
In the morning the godly will rule over them.
    Their bodies will rot in the grave,
    far from their grand estates.
15 But as for me, God will redeem my life.
    He will snatch me from the power of the grave. Psalm 49:6-15

It is Good Friday today. Tell me how this day changed humanity’s point of view about the grave referenced in verse 11.

  1. Wishing you Christian Love and Blessings for Easter Pastor Lillie, we remember at this time the great Sacrifice Jesus our Lord and Saviour made for us and our Abba Father who allowed Him because of His great Love for us, just as a hatched egg brings New Life, so does Jesus bring Eternal New Life when we believe in Him.

    God’s Peace – Anne.
