It makes me think about what I am putting my trust in right now. It feels like we are walking a tightrope in our nation. Some are putting their hope in social campaigns, politics, or governments to change the world. If placed into the story, we would not be the tightrope walker but rather the trusting person in the wheelbarrow.
The most important decision right now is to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. This world is temporary but Jesus Christ is everlasting. We do not lean on our own understanding but operate BY FAITH when our greatest challenges arise. In Hebrew 11, it explains that it was “by faith” that Noah built the ark which saved his family. It was “by faith” that Moses parted the Red Sea to save his people. In this way, Christians are to demonstrate their faith in a better country, a heavenly one.
