Dearly beloved welcome to Our Daily Bread Friday Devotional 14th May 2021 titled Take In. This message shall be a blessing to your life.

As you read, please remember to share this daily devotional with your family and friends. Jesus loves you.

TODAY’S TOPIC: TAKE IN

Key Verse:

People who . . . lack understanding are like the beasts that perish.

– Psalm 49:20

Scripture: Psalm 49:5–20

Insight: In one of Jesus’ last meetings with His disciples, He helped them see how Scriptures like Psalm 49 find new meaning in light of His life, death, and resurrection (Luke 24:44). As evidence of His ability to solve the universal problem of human mortality (Psalm 49:1, 7–9, 15), He showed them His scars and ate a piece of broiled fish (Luke 24:42–43). He’d come to give fullness of meaning to all things written about Him in the law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms; He showed our need of Him from Scripture (vv. 36–49).

My old dog sits by my side and stares off into space. A penny for her thoughts. One thing I know she isn’t thinking about is dying because dogs don’t “understand.” They don’t think about future things. But we do. No matter our age or health or wealth, we at some point think about dying. That’s because we, unlike beasts, have “understanding,” according to Psalm 49:20. We know that we will die, and there’s nothing we can do about it. “No one can redeem the life of another or give to God a ransom for them” (v. 7). No one has enough money to buy himself or herself out of the grave.

But there is a way out of the finality of death: “God will redeem me from the realm of the dead,” insists the psalmist. “He will surely take me to himself” (v. 15; literally, “He will take me in”). Robert Frost said, “Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.” God has redeemed us from death through His Son, “who gave himself as a ransom for all people” (1 Timothy 2:6). Thus Jesus promised that when our time comes, He will greet us and take us in (John 14:3).

When my time comes, Jesus, who gave to God the price of my life, will welcome me into His Father’s house with open arms. By: David H. Roper
