Put no trust in extortion; set no vain hopes on robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart on them. Psalm 62:10
So often this world tells us that we need lots of “things” to be happy, and all that we end up with is a huge unfulfillable hole in our lives. The message of the bible is completely opposite to that of this world. It is in Christ alone that we should intrust our happiness. He is the one who blesses, he is the one who creates an atmosphere of peace. If you have lots of “things” and you find yourself in despair, your trust has been misplaced.
