Ah yes, things in this fallen world go from one whim to another, from one purpose to another. The desires of a sinful populace produce shifting values that ultimately cannot stand. They can to be likened to the “the grass” that “withers” and “the flower” that “fades.”

But be not dismayed, for in the midst of all this shifting God assures us that His Word “stands forever!” What the world establishes as its preferences outside the Word of God will “wither,” it will “fade,” it will cease to exist
