Where is Your Trust?

In Conversations, Sermon Spillover on May 8, 2011 by The Spillover

This week’s question is, “Where is your trust?”.

I can’t help but think back to a time in my life when I realized that my trust was not in God. It was in money. I certainly wouldn’t have admitted that at the time, but as they say, actions speak louder than words. I pursued money with all my energy, and anything I made I held with a tight fist, trusting it for my security. It was a big part of my identity. I used it to mask self-consciousness. I allowed it to give me a feeling of worth. And if I didn’t have it, I didn’t feel secure.

I feel shame when I think about it. But God dealt with it.

What about you? Have you ever been in a place in your life where you realized that your trust was not in God, but in something or someone else?
