It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes. — Psalm 118: 8-9
Probably not many of you remember a TV game show called “Who Do You Trust.” It aired in the afternoons and its famous for introducing two characters to TV — Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon of the Tonight Show fame.
The Psalmist tells us to take “refuge in the Lord” rather than to trust man or princes. It’s a warning we often fail to heed, and then we are disappointed when man and princes prove not to be worthy of our trust.
We are over a year away from electing a new President. We will hear countless promises over the next year, and we will hear hundreds of pleas to trust in a certain man or woman wanting to become our nation’s prince or princess.
It is better “to take refuge in the Lord.”
