Some Things Are Just Useless!

Psalm Ten
"Why does the wicked man revile God? Why does he say to himself, "He won't call me to account"? But you, O God, do see trouble and grief; you consider it to take it in hand. The victim commits himself to you; you are the helper of the fatherless. Break the arm of the wicked and evil man; call him to account for his wickedness that would not be found out.

"You hear, O Lord, the cry of the poor; you encourage them, and you listen to their plea, defending the fatherless and the oppressed, in order that man, who is of the earth, may terrify no more."

Wealth is useless on the day of death; isn't it? All is left behind for someone else to see their very own short days of fleeting gain. Then, they too pass away – all is vanity. However, great is the generosity of God, who grants us eternal virtues; clothing us in expensive raiment - generosity, patience, kindness and goodness, but only for those who let him. And so we pray . . .

R Lord, you hear the prayer of the poor!

For those who go to bed hungry,
- that they may be fed by those who go to bed full. R

For those who suffer the diseases of poverty,
- that they may find help from those who suffer the diseases of affluence. R

For those who are neglected,
- that they may find care from those who are loved. R

For the poor souls who have died,
- that they may be loved and remembered by those who are alive. R

Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
1 Timothy 6:17-19
