My Heart: An Idol Factory

I recognize more often than not, my heart is an idol factory, constantly producing idols to feed my own unhealthy needs for approval and validation. If I do not ask myself hard questions, I will certainly bow to their control.

I have even foolishly convinced myself and others the thing I was pursuing was “God’s will,” even when I knew all along, in the back of my mind, it was purely an idol my soul was desperately feeding upon.

This is why we need accountability in the body of Christ and friends who will ask hard questions, to save us from being destroyed by the idols we have set up in our own hearts. 

“Ephraim is oppressed, trampled in judgement, intent on pursuing idols.” – Hosea 5:11
