Money fails to redeem our soul, which is only accomplished in Christ. Three eternal failures of money Money fails to stop death (5-12, 16-17) Money fails to give eternal life (13-14, 18-19) Money fails to be a substitute for God. (7,14,15)
God’s discipline should drive us to Biblical confession. How should someone confess to God? They should acknowledge life is short. They should come to God alone. They should be open and honest about their sin. They should ask for forgiveness. They should ask for God’s grace.
