The Price of a Life - Part 2
Yesterday we looked at Psalm 49. The Psalm is primarily about not trusting in riches. No matter how famous or wealthy you are while alive, you can't take it with you (see verse 17).
Let's consider again verses 7-9, the same verses we looked at yesterday. "No man can redeem the life of another or give to God ransom for him -- the ransom for a life is costly, no payment is ever enough -- that he should live on forever and not see decay." It's true that no man can redeem the life of another. But Jesus was able to redeem us because he was no mere man. The price for our redemption was steep. It was much more than the 30 pieces of silver which was the price for Jesus' life. We should treat our own life and the lives of all others as the precious, expensive gift that they are.

I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
