Bible Commentary for 1 Chronicles 29:13

Wesley's Notes for 1 Chronicles 29:13


29:14 To offer - That thou shouldest give us both riches to make suchan offering, and a willing heart to offer them, both which are the giftsand the fruits of thy good grace and mercy to us. Of thine - We returnonly what we have received, and therefore only pay a debt to thee.The more we do for God, the more we are indebted to him; for the honour ofbeing employed in his service, and for grace enabling us in any measure toserve him.

29:15 Strangers - For the land which we possess is thine, not ours;we are not the proprietors but only thy tenants: and as our fathersonce were mere strangers in it, even before men, so we at this day areno better before thee, having no absolute right in it, but only to travelthrough it, and sojourn in it for the short time that we live in the world.None abiding - We only give thee what we must shortly leave, and what wecannot keep to ourselves: and therefore it is a great favour that thouwilt accept such offerings. David's days had as much of substance inthem as most men: for he was upon the whole a good man, an useful man,and now an old man. And yet he puts himself in the front of those whomust acknowledge, that their days on the earth are as a shadow: whichspeaks of our life as a vain life, a dark life, a transient life, and alife that will have its period, either in perfect light or perfect darkness.
