Psalm 49

Do not be overawed when a man grows rich, when the splendor of his house increases; for he will take nothing with him when he dies, his splendor will not descend with him. (v16-17)

It is easy to get caught up in the sparkle of fame and fortune. Seems like the good life means one is always moving up to bigger and more. We live in a culture of comsuption which is never satisfied with what one has but instead is always craving more. With easy payments, no money down, and no interest due for 90 days. And it starts by wanting what someone else has. It is living with our eyes on the things of this earth. 

God calls us to a heavenly perspective, to live with our eyes focused on eternity. For rich and poor, we will each face death and all the things that money buys will be left behind.
