2020 Day 231 – 1 Kings 9-10 and Psalms 48

In chapter 49 the Psalmist reminds us that riches of this world are not to be envied nor feared.  “Why should I fear in times of trouble, when the iniquity of those who cheat me surrounds me, those who trust in their wealth and boast of the abundance of their riches?” (Psalms 49:6)  Money is necessary for us to live, but the pursuit of great riches has the same end for everyone who strives for it.  “For he sees that even the wise die; the fool and the stupid alike must perish and leave their wealth to others.” (Psalms 49:10)

Today’s reading: 1 Kings 9-10 and Psalms 48
