Psa 118:6-9 With the LORD on my side I do not fear. What can man do to me? The LORD is on my side to help me; I shall look in triumph on those who hate me. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
We must not be afraid to pick God over worldly ideas and pursuits. There is no one on this planet that saves. There is nothing we can purchase that will go with us to eternity. We must choose to follow the Lord instead of the things the world tells us to follow; value the things the Lord says to value instead of the things the world tells us to value.
Mar 8:36-38 For what does it profit a man, to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? For what can a man give in return for his life? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of man also be ashamed, when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
