What Do You Worship?

Who but a fool would make his own god-an idol that can help him not one whit! ~Isaiah 44:10~

Dear Child,

>When you read accounts of ancient people groups bowing down to stone idols, you probably think how backward and unenlightened they were. Actually there are probably people in your neighborhood whose hearts are "bowing down" to their houses, which are nothing but stacks of stones, or to their automobiles, which are nothing but hunks of metal, or to their wardrobes, which are nothing but cuts of cloth. They may not even know that they've got a worship situation going on, but I know. When a person spends the largest part of her thought and energy and care on something other than me, that thing is her god.

Do some soul-searching. Am I really the one you worship? Make me--

Your One and Only,
