Ransom my Life

Reading Psalm 49 today.

Amazing words about wisdom and mortality:

“We can never ransom ourselves, or deliver to God the price of our life”

then verse 15 – “But God will ransom my life; he will snatch me from the grasp of death”

Eugene Peterson on these verses: We recognise the limitations of human life – not to despair, but in order to our our hope in God.
