What are our idols?


Psalm 106:19-20
At Horeb they fashioned a calf, worshiped a metal statue. They exchanged their glorious God for the image of a grass-eating bull.


When we hear what God’s people did after God had faithfully freed them from oppression through the leadership of Moses…we shake our heads.

How could they actually worship a statue of a bull?

And yet, what golden idol takes center-stage in our lives?

Instead of a statue of a bull…is it our various media devices? Is it our computers and the internet?

What about our fancy cars or houses? Is it money, power, prestige, alcohol, sex, etc.?

Is our golden idol nationalism or perhaps the military?

Or could it be sports? Is our “church” a metal and cement structure called a stadium and do we glorify and worship the team on the field?

Jesus turned away from all the false gods and gave himself totally to the One God in the service of all.

Love took center stage.

May that be so for each of us.
