Wednesday's Words of Wisdom...Mike Wittmer on Idols

"Two facts are always true about idols. First, idols serve their makers, so it is we who pray and put our hope in them who actually play the role of god. We are in charge, and they exist to meet our needs. Second, idols wear us out. As the Philistines rose each morning to dust off and prop up their fallen god Dagon (1 Samuel 5:1-5), so we discover that idols demand our constant care and protection."
