Put your seat belts on.
This ride might get a bit rough.
Let's begin with a bumpy comment.
The kind of word that will eject you from your car seat.
Your heart is an idol factory.
It churns them out faster than a hefty guy at the Golden Corral buffet line grabbing at the fatty spare ribs.
I know that you don't think of yourself as an idolater. And I know that when I say the word "idol" you are thinking of Golden Calves and the TV show which churns out preppy-one-hit-wonder's.
But the reality is people worship everything from what money can buy. What it can't. Heck we even worship the green back's themselves.
Before we move on, we need to answer a question, "What is an idol?""It is anything more important to you than God, anything that absorbs your heart and imagination more than God, anything you seek to give you what only God can give." If anything in all the world is more fundamental than God to your happiness, to your meaning in life, then that thing has become an idol. It has supplanted God in your heart and in your affections. You will pursue that thing with an abandon and intensity that should be reserved for God alone."
Why do we love idols?
You and I love the 3 dimensional world.
The things that we can see, feel and touch.
But what if there was more to life than those things?
What if the reason you are not satisfied in this life is directly connected to not understanding and appreciating the things that remain invisible to the human eye?
Faith, Love, Hope.
All flowing from a heart that knows God.
