Misplaced Trust in Wealth by Richard Sherrer 05/30/21 Psalm 49:13–20
The pathway of confidence, That foolish people will boast;Their folly of their defense, Approved sayings loved the most.Like sheep are laid in the grave, Death shall then be their shepherd; Iniquity as a slave, Not adhering to the Word. The upright rules over them, Beauty consumed by the grave; For where they dwell will condemn, Having no faith that will save. But God will redeem my soul,From the power of the grave; Receiving me to control, No longer as to enslave. Fear not of someone with wealth, When the glory increases; He blooms from spiritual health, On actions that God pleases. When He dies, he takes nothing, His glory will not go down; Rather his belief will bring, Beauty of a golden crown. While he lives God will bless, Getting praise when he does well; Discipline as to transgress, Not confessed will go to hell. Because his generation, Will never again see light; Of what his father had done, In giving of his insight. The lack of understanding, But honor he does cherish; Like a beast is demanding, In the end will then perish.
