Most of those we consider the best known of our day will one day be largely forgotten. The most athletic and beautiful of our generation will eventually be brought low in death. “Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish” (v. 20).
The Psalmist pictures death as like a shepherd leading all to the grave (v. 14). But for the believer there is hope: “But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah” (v. 15). What a word of comfort this might be for the believer when he lies on his death bed. What a good funeral text this would be for a believer.
What does it mean to live a wise life? It means to understand:
Grace and peace, Pastor Jeff Riddle
