American idols: Bible-in-a-month challenge, 18 of 30

Day 18 — Isaiah 64:5-Jeremiah 31:19

Jeremiah prophesied to Judah in advance of their exile into Babylon.  It’s heart-breaking to see the condition of God’s people.  They abandon the true God again and again in favor of idolatry marked by horrific pagan worship rituals.

It’s easy to shake your head at Judah.  Tsk, tsk … how stupid and blind can you be?  Turning your back on the Lord to serve the mute and dumb idols of the culture around you.  Really?

But I wonder.  What idols have been imported into our lives by the present-day culture?  Into my life?

Lord, open my eyes to see what worldly passions have charmed my heart!  And give me the grace to tear down the “high places” which have become a snare to me.
