A man with valuable possessions, but without understanding is like the animals that perish. Psalm 49: 20
What a terrible picture! Can you see a dead skunk or rabbit in the middle of the road when you read this? Well you ought to. When it comes to an end, then that is it—it has no hope of anything beyond death. While the man in question survives death (unlike the animal), he has no hope of anything good—only judgment and eternal suffering apart from God. You who trust in your money—think about this verse. If you do, you will want to come to Jesus Christ Who alone can provide, by His death for sinners, eternal life.
