Stop trusting in man who has but a breath in his nostrils. Of what account is he?
People can fail us, but we still pin so many of our hopes on them. They are fallible and mortal just like we are.
So while we are involved in the lives of other people, let's also remember to keep our hopes connected to the Son of God, who “defeated death and brought immortality and life to light” and who will “never leave or forsake” us.
Heavenly Father, help me not to pin my well-being and happiness on being accepted by a certain group or loved by a certain person. I know my only lasting hope is found in Jesus, in whose name I pray. Amen.
