05/16/19 – John 8:31-59; Psalm 112:1-10; Proverbs 15:12-14
As Jim has been leading us through the Sunday morning study of Ecclesiastes we see Solomon making the point that our trust and our happiness cannot be on possessions or what we collect. I think the following passage from Psalm 112 echoes this reality:
6 Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever. 7 They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord. 8 Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes. 9 They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor, their righteousness endures forever; their horn will be lifted high in honor. 10 The wicked will see and be vexed, they will gnash their teeth and waste away; the longings of the wicked will come to nothing.
