Security? … Where’s the best place to find it?

financial-securitySecurity… It’s a big deal! People spend a lot of their hard earned money and put their confidence in the advice of financial planners to get it! No one knows what the future holds or what might happen; so they try to create some security… diversified investments, buying up gold and silver, property purchases… Some even have been known to “stash a shoe box with cash” in some “safe” place where no thief would find it.

Security is found in different places for different people. This morning during “coffee with the Lord” I came across a brief passage in Proverbs that presents a stark contrast…

“The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe…

“A rich man’s wealth is his strong city, and like a high wall in his imagination.”

I don’t know about you, but I’ve made what I believe to be a quality decision… “The name of the Lord (His person, promises, and character) will be “my strong tower” that I run to in times of instability and trouble! I’ve seen what happens to those who seek to make “wealth” their “strong city” or “high wall!” Their security – present and future – is simply a figment of their “imagination,” as the proverb emphasizes. Putting your confidence in “The everlasting God – Creator of heaven and earth” (Isaiah 40:28-31 cp. Luke 21:33) it seems to me, is a much better choice!
