Turn away from mortals (NRSV)


Isaiah 2:22 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

Turn away from mortals,
    who have only breath in their nostrils,
    for of what account are they?

Whenever we trust in human beings, we are bound to be disappointed. I heard a really good comment lately: “They stopped making perfect people a long time ago.” I had to chuckle; it reminded me of what happened in the Garden of Eden. I had no problem agreeing with that statement.

People will come into and go out of our lives, but God is always there for us–even Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. That’s worth reflecting on!
