I recently had the joy (I mean that; it was a real joy) of reading Mack Stiles’ book, 17 Things My Kids Taught Me about God.  If you can find a copy, get it!  Among the gems I enjoyed is this bit of pastoral counsel:

Ask yourself this question: In what ways are you dissatisfied with how God is running things?  If you can identify your dissatisfaction with how God is running the show, you can identify the place where you are tempted for idols to become your God.

Kill the idols in your life by making Christ your life. (pp. 68, 69).

Identifying Idols is a post from: Pure Church by Thabiti Anyabwile
