Worldly pride no hope in Christ

We take pride with our earthly achievements and that is common. We feel secure when we are in plenty and that is good. But trusting in all these is grievous. Let's see what the Bible say about this...

Psa 49:6-13 KJV* They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;  None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:

(For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:) That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption. For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.

Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names. Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish. This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.

None of the material things of the world can give safety to our soul. But... Jesus Christ can.

Joh 4:14 KJV* But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
