Idols In Our Hearts

Most of us don’t set up literal idols in our homes and worship them.  Rather, we have what God calls, “idols in our hearts.”

What’s an idol?  Tim Keller says it so well:

“What is an idol?  It is anything more important to you than God, anything that absorbs your heart and imagination more than God, anything you seek to give you what only God can give.  A counterfeit god is anything so central and essential to your life that, should you lose it, your life would feel hardly worth living.”  Tim Keller, Counterfeit Gods
