Day 27 | Austin Davis
It calls on those who have attained glory, riches, and other worldly possessions, and then it puts things into perspective. No matter how great you are, all life ends in the same place; the grave.
“Be not afraid when a man becomes rich, when the glory of his house increases. For when he dies he will carry nothing away; his glory will not go down after him.” (49:16-17)
“Let Mount Zion be glad! Let the daughters of Judah rejoice because of your judgements!” (48:11)
God’s judgment is so pure and righteous that it is something to be praised. I know this because God sent his son Jesus to be a living, breathing, fully God, and fully human example of himself.
In the midst of trying to live a loving, Christ like life, we can do so knowing we have a 100% just God, and that same God is also 100% merciful.
