In Choosing the Right God

January 27, 2018

While pagan temples may not be a big draw today, the temptation of idols is alive and real.  In fact, the most attractive idol is our self! Our excuses for not giving more may be about our loyalties and values more than the excuse we verbalize.  We are told by Jesus to “lay up treasure in heaven” because our hearts follow our money!  The invitation isn’t so much about “need,” but it has its roots in avoiding idols. Even good, worthy, enjoyable things can elevate to the place of primary purpose of our lives and the consumer of all our resources.  Choosing the right God removes the power of the idol.
