Clinging to a spiders web

"They hang their life from one thin thread, they hitch their fate to a spider web. One jiggle and the thread breaks, one jab and the web collapses." - Job 8 (The Message) 

Life is very fragile and yet, even knowing this, many people still seem to hang everything onto one small thread or a "spiders web." Health, employment, relationships, material comforts, all fall into the category of the 'one thin thread' in my opinion. And when we lose these things, our whole lives seem to fall apart. 

It is not that God doesn't want us to enjoy any of these things - of course we can still love God and enjoy our work, relationships and so on. The trouble comes in when 'EVERYTHING' hinges from these things and there is no room for God. That is the dangerous place to be in.

I guess, Jesus still says it best, when he says, "a wise person builds their house upon the rock!"

Living in Grace
