Present a Righteous Example to our Children

JULY 17, 2024 Psalm 49:13-14 This is the way of those who are foolish, and of their posterity who approve their sayings. Like sheep they are laid in the grave.

May We Hear Him Say, Well Done

JULY 16, 2024 Psalm 49:10-12 The fool and the senseless person perish, and leave their wealth to others. Their inner thought is that their houses will last forever, their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.

JULY 14, 2024 Psalm 49:5 Why should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity at my heels surrounds me?

Apparently, this particular verse discloses […]

Always Be Ready to Hear

JULY 12, 2024 Psalm 49:4 I will incline my ear to a proverb; I will disclose my dark saying on the harp. The Hebrew word that is translated here as “proverb” is equivalent in meaning to the word “parable” which literally means “throwing alongside.” In other words, a parable is a story, oftentimes fictional, that is […]

He Doesn’t Change

JULY 9, 2024 Psalm 48:12-14 Walk about Zion, and go all around her. Count her towers; mark well her bulwarks. Consider her palaces that you may tell it to the generation following.
