Psalm 111-112

God's works are great.  Those who delight in God study them.
He gives food, nations, justice, redemption, and His covenant.
The beginning of wisdom is fearing God.

Fearing God brings blessing: mighty children, a rich house, etc.
He is generous and fair, not fearful.
The wicked are mad at him, but it doesn't matter, because they fade away.

111 - take time to recount God's works in your life, and in history.

112 - This is a general principle, not a specific promise that every believer will be wealthy or have influential children.  But this doesn't mean there's nothing to it.  Left to its natural course, those who fear God will experience these things.
