The Very Best Idols

Jay Keywood is married to my second cousin-in-law. Now I'm not sure if that is actually a recognized familial relationship, but I am sure that he wrote a good blog post today in regards to idols. In it he makes the following wise observation:
Most of the time, things become idols, not because they are inherently evil, like “murder,” but because God made them good, like “family.” The most intimate manifestations of idolatry are not hidden in the jungles of Cambodia, but thriving right under our noses. 
Click here to read the whole post and see why, as he puts it, the best things make the best idols.
