The Things We Cling To

Sometimes we feel like if we just had a bit more money then everything would be okay. Or perhaps it is getting a job in the first place, or landing a promotion, or even feeling like if you had a bit more status and influence things would turn out alright.

While there is nothing wrong with any of those objects, unfortunately by looking to them for our security we turn good things into ultimate things, and they aren’t able to come up with the goods. They are not able to provide the security we crave, and ultimately they will let us down, not satisfy. They are not meant to!

What things in your life have you turned into ‘ultimate things’? What deeper need are we trying to address by clinging to these?
