Hey this is Ron Moore with today's Bible Minute.
Many people construct "fortified towers" today. Some are built with money. Others feel invincible due to their intelligence, or training or position.
But pride in ourselves, or in our stuff, is always a red flag. Proverbs 18:10-12 reminds us:
"The name of the LORD is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. The wealth of the rich is their fortified city; they imagine it a wall too high to scale. Before a downfall the heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor."
Those who follow Jesus realize that only He is the place of security and protection. It's only Jesus who can protect us throughout our life.
