Worshipping Idols

21 05 2009

The thing you turn to when under stress/facing trials is your idol.  So when you bash the car, lose your job, break up a relationship, etc, what do you turn to?

Shopping

Drink

Food

Sex

Sport

Particular person

Housework

Internet

Films

Music

DIY

Work

These things are all okay in and of themselves.  But if one of them is your default setting when things go wrong, it is your idol.  God allows trials to reveal to us who or what our god is, and to help us come to Him afresh.  By doing that, we grow closer to God and keep these other things in perspective.
