What Value is an Idol?

Of what value is an idol, since a man has carved it? Or an image that teaches lies?

For he who makes it trusts in his own creation; he makes idols that cannot speak.

Woe to him who says to wood, 'Come to life!' Or to lifeless stone, 'Wake up!'

Can it give guidance? It is covered with gold and silver; there is no breath in it.


But the LORD is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him.

Habakkuk 2:18-20

What is the idol that captivates your heart? Do not let it be so, but always let the Lord reign - in your heart and in your mind. Breathe deep the Life given you and give thanks to our God - Jesus Christ, our Saviour. Let Him reign and He will guide your way to everlasting life. In this world we have many things we hold dear to us, but none compares to Him, to all that He has for us. Be released and go forth in the name of Jesus Christ to bring Glory to Him, to make the Kingdom of God known, here, now. Go. To His Glory!

They Did Not Realize

Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. ~John 21:4
