7 Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil. 8 It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones. Proverbs 3:7-8 (ESV)
The endless barrage of advertisements are working overtime to convince us that we’re not good enough, strong enough, smart enough, or diligent enough to make it without whatever they are selling. Given enough time, it’s likely you will find yourself doubting your health, vitality, or self-awareness.
Truth time… they don’t care about you. They only care about the next sale.
Evil spends the day trying to convince you to buy it’s product… that you are self-sufficient… able to do it on your own… or better than the last guy who died. Evil doesn’t care about you… it only wants the next sale – which is what happens when you hand over your trust in God for a big dose of trust in yourself.
