But man, despite his riches, does not endure;
he is like the beasts that perish.
This is the fate of those who trust in themselves,
and of their followers, who approve their sayings. (Psalm 49:12)
We will all face death one day. Our choice in life is to wait on that day for the benefit of redemption as though Christ died for nothing but an insurance policy with us as the beneficiary or to be free today.
But God will redeem my life from the grave;
he will surely take me to himself. (v15)
You have been redeemed and set free. Will you walk up out of your self-made tomb? Will you live as a free man or woman in Christ?
Grace and peace to you.
