The idols of the nations are silver and gold, made by human hands. They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but cannot see. They have ears, but cannot hear, nor is there breath in their mouths. Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them.

– Psalm 135:15-18 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

We may not have idols that we see in our daily lives, but idols are all around us. We make idols of career, family, comfort, and many other things that are as man-made as the ancient ones of silver and gold. These modern idols shape us into their image just as much as the ancient ones did. Do you trust in money? Watch how it affects you when money is at stake. Do you trust in status? Don’t be surprised if you crumble when a promotion doesn’t come through. God made us for Himself, and turning to any other god is a tragedy in the making.
