Idols are silver and gold, the handiwork of men

Idols are silver and gold, the handiwork of men April 29, 2013


Today’s daily meditation in Living Faith is one of mine. The reading is:

Our God is in heaven;
whatever he wills, he does.
Their idols are silver and gold,
the handiwork of men.

— Psalm 115:3-4

Here’s a bit of my reflection:

Any time we put some material desire ahead of God’s will, we are worshiping an idol. If I’ll do anything to get a big house, I’m making worldly success an idol. If I let someone else be blamed for my mistake, I’m making my reputation an idol.

But we can return at any moment.
