Yesterday Michael Phelps was suspended by USA Swimming for 3 months after a recent photo surfaced of him smoking marijuana. This incident is the latest in the young Olympic star’s life. I’m not here to judge; we all make mistakes and poor choices. But what I do want to say is that when we place our trust or pin our hopes on people to the point that they become heroes or “idols” we will inevitably be let down. There is no man or “flesh” that we can put our full confidence in, and this even includes “religious” leaders. They did not die on the cross for us, only the Son of Man, Jesus Christ did that and in Him is where our trust should reside. Psalm 118:8 tells us, “It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.” Remember that the next time you’re quick to give your allegiance away.
Isaiah 2:22 “Stop trusting in man, who has but a breath in his nostrils. Of what account is he?”
Have a blessed day!
