Feb 25 – Mis-Placed Trust

Charges were laid recently against 14 former employees of the now closed New England Compounding Pharmacy in Framingham Massachusetts. The charges included improper sterilization, using expired ingredients, and failing to comply with basic health standards. More than 750 people fell ill. Twenty died. These people trusted the Pharmacy and its employees and paid a high price. Mis-placed trust, whether in the medical, and education systems or in our spiritual leaders, is very dangerous. But while human systems sometimes fail and people disappoint us, there is One who never fails. King David, testified, “I have put my trust in You, Lord. Show me the way I should go…”. Jeremiah wrote, “Blessed is the man who trust in the Lord and whose hope is the Lord.” And Paul assured the Philippian Jailer, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.” We can confidently put our trust in God and in His written Word.
