What a world we live in! We have come so far in so many ways: wealth, medicine, science, democracy, and religion. The human race knows more and has more than ever before. And yet, wisdom and happiness are still as elusive as ever. We long to have lives of significance, but something seems to hold us back. Our pastor’s series on idols reminds us that idols are not just ancient history. They are not artifacts in a far off land or objects made of stone or wood. Idols entangle our hearts. They are still very much with us and keeping us from full devotion to God and fulfillment in life.
