1 Timothy 6:17 "As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy."ESV

Okay two things right off the bat. I know that having provision in our finances are important for everyone. Second, but if your like me your thinking this can't apply to me because I am so far from being rich even if I had one of those space telescopes I couldn't see it.

However, what are your hopes focussed on. Your retirement, 401k, inheritance, savings, investments or maybe social security. The whole point in Paul's teaching here is that nothing on this earth is to where it can't fail you. The only person who will never fail you is God. You've heard the saying about their hopes being dashed, well with Jesus that can't happen, if you hopes are in Him instead of the world. Oh they may seem challenged at times but they will not fail because Jesus will never fail you.
