    That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. though bad things can happen to christians. and good things seem to happen to bad people. though both the evil and the good die. the upright shall have dominion over the evil left in the grave because he trusted in Jehovah God!

    Psalm 49:15 This trully is a passage that creates confidence and peace in me concerning death. Along with 1 Thess. Ch. 4, I take a remarkable zeal against death, almost like the attitude that one boxer has toward his opponent.
    I am child of GOD, and like Jesus, my Father will also one day raise me up out of the power of the grave.

    When we are faced with struggles in life it is good to know that where we find most comfort is in God. As much as I would love the devil to stay gone he is not going to . My comfort is in knowing like Lazarus he cannot take heaven from me.
  • Malachy Obeta for verse 12
    Waoo! wealth, Houses and good Name are important but we will one day leave them and go up there to our heavenly Father who have many mansions. therefore as col.3:1 urges that we that have risen with Christ should seek the things that are above.
  • Brianna for verse 10
    "You can 't take it with you " Jesus encouraged us to store up treasures in heaven, rather than the earth. As we can see we can cultivate a lot of material possessions, but in the end when we die, they go to other individuals. So, I think this scripture is helpful in encouraging us to be generous with the our resources. "share the wealth " so to speak, because when you 're gone, it 's gone.
