Thin Ice

But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit. - Jeremiah 17:7-8

When I was a boy, I fell into freezing water while trying to cross some thin ice. A while later, my brothers took me to a frozen pond—where I wasn’t in jeopardy of falling through. It was frozen thick and solid. 
 
Yet even when my brothers ran out onto the ice to demonstrate its sturdiness, they had a difficult time convincing me it would support my weight. I’d been fooled by solid-looking ice before. Finally, they dragged me onto the ice. At first, I tested it nervously. Then slowly and hesitantly I began to trust the ice.
 
My experiences with ice remind me of the philosophies and teachings in which we put our faith. We have to test them to make sure they’re trustworthy. 
 
Are you trusting in thin ice? Or in something thick and solid? Put your faith in Christ!
 
“Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love, and the future to God’s providence.” - St. Augustine (354-430)
