less than  a breath

Psalm 62:8-10 (JDV)

Psalm 62:8 Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before him. God is our refuge. Selah.
Psalm 62:9 Common people are only temporary; important people, a lie. Together on a scale, they weigh less than a breath.
Psalm 62:10 Place no trust in oppression, or false hope in robbery. If wealth increases, don’t set your heart on it.

less than  a breath

Jesus keeps singing this psalm and it talks to him about how temporary human life is. It weighs both the common person and the “important” person, and when it puts them both on the scale — they weigh less than a breath.

Jesus would have the opportunity to side with the oppressors, or to join the robbers. He would remember these words and hold fast to his sky Father.

How about us? Are we putting our hope in wealth and importance? Anything we could gain apart from a relationship with God is less than a breath.

Lord, you are our refuge. Our trust is in you.
