|14 What they trust in is fragile ; what they rely on is a spider’s web.
What an amazing word picture of what we so often look to, depend on, consult with, allow to support and guide our lives.
My spider web—-
My friends and families opinions
The media/secular world’s opinion
What feels right
What makes me look good
What makes me feel good
What I think is ‘right’
What I think God wants, likes, ‘needs’
But how often is the anchor point, the starting point, the foundation, His Word or seeking Him in prayer? And I find myself falling through space with cobwebs clinging to me.
15 They lean on the web, but it gives way; they cling to it, but it does not hold.
