“For all can see that the wise die, that the foolish and the senseless also perish, leaving their wealth to others. Their tombs will remain their houses forever, their dwellings for endless generations, though they had named lands after themselves. People, despite their wealth, do not endure; they are like the beasts that perish. This is the way of those who are arrogant and their followers who approve of their words” (Psalm 49:10-13).
Don’t be like them. Valuable possessions without understanding is meaningless. We shall be gracious to everything that the good God has given us and not live to collect gold in this world alone. We are called to love God and not use our mouths for evil or our tongues for deceit. We are to edify our parents and do what is right in God’s eyes. We need to be gracious to God and for everything that He has given us. God will last but not man. Whatever you do, do it for God.
“Do not give the life of your dove to the beasts” (Psalm 74:19).
