Dust of the Earth

My soul clings to the dust;
revive me according to your word.

Psalm 119:25

Do we cling to the dust of the earth?  Yes we must see the dust, yes we must acknowledge the dust, yes we must tackle the dust, yes we must value you those trampled down in it.  But surely we shouldn’t cling to it, making it an idol.  The dust of earthly desires and possessions, the dust of earthly vanities and hopes, the dust of death to which our mortal bodies will return.  If we cling to the dust of the earth, where then is our hope?
