Are You Trusting in Feet of Clay?

The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze,its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. – Daniel 2:32-34

Have you ever heard the saying, “He has feet of clay”? It originates from the scripture above. Basically, what it means is that someone is untrustworthy or cannot be depended on.

Our heroes, they have heads of pure gold, silver chests and arms, and bellies and thighs of bronze. Beautiful to look at and seemingly unbreakable. So bright in the sunlight, we have to shield our eyes from their splendor.

But all it takes is one stone aimed at those feet of clay to bring it all crashing down.
