7 For on that day, every one of you will reject the worthless idols of silver and gold that your own hands have sinfully made.
How many things do we end up worshiping because we’ve spent so much time making them?
I know a guy who really should move. The location he is in is not suited to his nor his wife’s desires for what they want to do. He is really stuck on the property he is on, though, because of the time, effort, and energy he has put into it.
He can’t see that there is a better location–or he can, but he holds to what he’s built. He doesn’t know the Lord, but I pray he and his wife will accept the gift the Lord offers; and I pray he will stop holding onto what his hands have made and he is idolizing.
