Verses one and two are very interesting:
1 The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it;
2 for he founded it on the seas
and established it on the waters.
I like how these verses illustrate God’s supreme sovereignty. The earth, everything in it, and all it’s inhabitants – everything – belongs to God. I think we lose sight of this some times, especially when it comes to our possessions like money, etc. Rather than use what really belongs to God for the glory of his kingdom, we hoard things or aren’t generous with them.
