Our God Carries Us
We might not worship statues made of gold or wood. Images and sculptures may not be a focus of worship for us. But our covetousness, materialism, and thirst for power are every bit as idolatrous as a worshiped statue. There are things in this life that are worth valuing. There are even things in this world that we would deem priceless. But if we value something in this world more than (or even equal to) Christ, we practice idolatry. Instead, we need to be intentional about delighting not in the idolatrous burdens we must carry, but in the righteous God who carries us, who sustains us.
