In whom or in what do we put our trust in?
Sitting in an airplane, going to and coming back from Germany, I was reminded how easily we trust in people and/or things. Sure, some of us are afraid of flying but not many will question the pilot’s skill or ask if it’s truly safe enough to take a flight.
Without much comment we’ll board the plane, we’ll take our seats, we’ll look out the window, we’ll more or less enjoy the flight and we are ready to put our lives in the hands of technology and pilots…
The picture above was taken during the flight back to Dublin, just before takeoff. There were about 200 people on board of that plane. How many of them would have been ready to meet Almighty God? How many love the creature, the things people make, more than the Creator? How many of us Christians board a plane, take a flight, and then pray and thank God for a safe trip afterwards?
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:1-5)
In whom or in what do we trust? Finances? Insurances? Skills of people? Or do we put our trust in the One who is above all, the Word?
