Where Is Your Confidence?

In the New Testament we read this statement: "Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward." Hebr. 10:35; We might well ponder these words and see where our confidence is placed.

A dictionary states that "confidence" may connote an unfavorable sense as well as a favorable one. Without knowing it, mankind are often swayed to trust in many false gods. When confidence stems from material or personal sense, it is based on human will denying the divine. Further indulgence can lead one into confiding in false idols, such as sophisticated drugs, diets, medical treatment, and so on. Such attractions are not new. They remind us of the Aesculapian beliefs of Roman and Greek mythology. Yet years of servitude to such material methods have not solved mankind's problems.
