    I am very fortunate to have been raised up by folks who urged me to depend on God rather than clinging to them. Had they done otherwise, I would helpless in their absence.

    I absolutely hear the warning in Joash’s story….both as one who is lead and one who gets to lead.

    I made the arrogant mistake of inviting a person to constantly depend on me – not in actual words, but in my interactions and constant presence in her daily life.

    When I shifted off her scene, she had to fight to find her feet in God alone. Guilt tempted me to recreate the dependence. I would have only delayed the inevitable feet finding process. Watching her very angry struggle is a weekly warning to me to urge others to God, not me, from minute one.

    My dependence has to be on God. Humans are flawed and, as you have stated, withdraw, die, or move away.

    God alone is never changing and always present.
