A daily devotional through the Bible speaking with God as Adam and Eve may have in the garden east of Eden. Our website http://alittlewalkwithgod.com
I wonder what happens to people’s brains to think that these objects made from their hands have any power in them. How can these pieces of wood, stone, silver, or gold molded into some image do them any good? Can sightless eyes see the trouble you have or the enemies you face? Can ears that do not hear understand the cries of your heart or hear your prayers as you plead for mercy or ask for grace in your times of trouble? Can a statue of wood or stone extend a tender heart and show compassion when you need it?
Today, we say we have become more civil, though. We no longer have idols, but don’t we? Look around and see what has replaced God in our praise and worship. Sports fields fill with cries of praise instead of churches being filled with praise. We sit in front of screens for entertainment instead of reading His word and learning of God or building our relationship with Him. We walk past the hungry and the needy without thought of helping.
Today’s Bible reading plans include:
Ready - Psalms 135
Set - Psalms 135; Romans 4
Go! - 2 Chronicles 6-7; Psalms 135; Romans 4
