Oh, the joys of those who trust the Lord,
    who have no confidence in the proud
    or in those who worship idols. Psalm 40:4

What does it look like when someone puts their confidence in the proud?

  1. Hmmm – sadly, it’s an easy trap, and there are plenty of proud to go around. With our fractured nation, I hear the proud crying from both sides telling me not to trust the other. Instead, I will put my trust in the one who humbled Himself and became obedient unto death. To Him be all glory, honor and power.

  2. Going out on a dangerous limb, I suppose–but if people are putting their confidence in an arrogant president, I suspect they’ll be disappointed. It’s one thing to have hopes that an elected official will be good/do good, make beneficial changes–but as Ben says, it’s so much better/secure to trust in the King who humbled Himself for the whole world.
