To Tyre, God says, “Your wealth, merchandise and wares, your mariners, seamen and shipwrights, your merchants and all your soldiers, and everyone else on board will sink into the heart of the sea on the day of your shipwreck” (Ezekiel 27:27). Those who are overladen by their attachment to the things of this world will sink in the storms of life. The Word of God says to us, “Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles” (Hebrews 12:1). Though the storms of life be very severe, the Lord’s promise remains true: “Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures for ever” (Psalm 125:1).
