I remember the morning I heard about the terrorists crashing planes in the World Trade Center. A lot changed in a mere 24 hours. We went from being a nation at peace to a nation at war. The deaths of loved ones, loss of jobs, the birth of a child – so much changes in so little time. The same was true with Job. He had so much. He was the one people came to for advice; he was the one people looked up to as having life figured out with his wealth, his success, and his family. But in such a short period of time, he lost it all.
What happens in 24 hours matters quite a bit. That's why we can't place our hope in our work, in our family, or in our wealth. After all, these things and more can be lost in a heartbeat. What matters is placing our hope in Christ. Where do you place your hope?
