Reflecting With God 1/02/2023

Thinking, praying, reading, studying the Bible – when we do these things, we are reflecting on the Word of God. To reflect is to contemplate and/or consider, and God wants us to deeply reflect on His Word so that we can better understand Him.

Monday Reflecting

For when he dies he shall carry nothing away; His glory shall not descend after him. – Psalm 49:17.

I remember an Eastern legend which I have always thought furnished a remarkable, though unconscious, commentary on these words of the Psalmist. Alexander the Great, we are told, being upon his death-bed, commanded that when he was carried forth to the grave, his hands should not be wrapped as usual in the cere cloth, but should be left outside the bier, so that all might see them, and might see that they were empty, that there was nothing in them; that he, born to one empire, and the conqueror of another, the possessor while he lived of two worlds—of the East and of the West—and of the treasures of both, yet now when he was dead could retain no smallest portions of these treasures; that in this matter the poorest beggar and he were at length on equal terms.
