"Nevertheless man, though in honor, does not remain; He is like the beast that perish." - Psalm 49 V12
"They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will be like refuse; Their silver and their gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord; They will not satisfy their souls, nor will fill their stomachs, because it became their stumbling block of iniquity." - Ezekiel 7 V19
Those who trust in their wealth and boast in the multitude of their riches, none of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him (Psalm 49 V6,7). All that man earns on Earth will perish and he will not carry any of it with him when he dies. There is only one investment that will last forever and that is when we serve God by serving others and give to those in need. Investing our time and resources for the glory of God will reap rewards that will last forever. During the tribulation, people who trust in their riches will cast it away into the streets for they will realize that it cannot save them from the wrath of God. So it is wise to invest now in the kingdom of God than in the pleasures of this world.
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
