🤴Psalm 51:13, “Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, And sinners shall be converted to You.”

Wealth Ps 49:16-17
Do not be overawed when a man grows rich. When the splendor of his house increases for he takes nothing with him when he dies…
Psalmist emphasizes folly of depending on material goods.wealth cannot buy the previous gift of life. Which comes from God alone. Riches of the world will mean nothing after death. The great temptation for us today is to chase more and more _ houses, cars, lands, …we forget that none of that lasts.we should not give attention to pursuits that leave little time or energy for God.
Jesus tells us to guard our hearts. from envy,coveteousness.we should place our highest value on imperishable riches so that when we leave our stuff behind, we will live forever with Jesus.
