Depend on God

The world today has many political problems. In some countries, people are overthrowing their leaders. In the United States, political leaders often make promises when they are running for office. But when they are elected, they do not keep their promises. Because of this, many people do not trust the government to help them.
Our Bible Reading today describes this same problem. Verse 3 tells us, “Don’t depend on your leaders for help. Don’t trust people. Why? Because people can’t save you.” Verse 4 tells us why people cannot save us. “People die and are buried. And then, all of their plans to help are gone.”
No one is perfect. We all make mistakes. Our help is only temporary. Only God will always do what He says. We can depend on God to take care of us for eternity. Depend on Him today!
