It is important that we set our hope upon the Lord, Himself—and nothing and no one else.
The seed sown among thorns is the person who hears the word, but worldly cares and the seductiveness of wealth choke the word, so it produces nothing. (Mt 13:22 NET)
We must try to stay clear from worldly cares and worldly desires, which will profit us nothing, spiritually.
Now the ones that fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity. (Lk 8:14 NKJV)
The cares and pleasures of earthly life will not bring any form of spiritual fruit to maturity. And we must remember that we live for Christ—to serve Him and to bring Him glory and honor and praise.
Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to set their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy. (1 Tim 6:17 NASB)
Believers should never allow themselves to feel confident in wealth or financial security, for these are fleeting and can crumble in a day or even a span of earthly hours.
But true security comes from placing our hope and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ who has promised that He will NEVER leave us nor forsake us. This means that Jesus will NEVER disown, abandon, reject, or renounce anyone who has accepted Him as their own Savior and Lord.
THAT is true security—now only for the moment but throughout eternity! Hallelujah!
