American Idol Worship? – Psalms 115

American Idol - American Idol Worship - Psalms 115In a day where “Idol” is an everyday word in America, I found todays reading in Psalms 115 quite interesting:

2 Why let the nations say, “Where is their God?”
3 Our God is in the heavens, and he does as he wishes.
4 Their idols are merely things of silver and gold, shaped by human hands.
5 They have mouths but cannot speak, and eyes but cannot see.
6 They have ears but cannot hear, and noses but cannot smell.
7 They have hands but cannot feel, and feet but cannot walk, and throats but cannot make a sound.
8 And those who make idols are just like them, as are all who trust in them.

What are you putting ahead of God? Can it speak? Can it hear? Can it smell? Can it actually do anything for you more than a fleeting moment of self-satisfaction?

Put your trust in God. Only God can help you and shield you.

grace & peace,
e
