The Gods we worship write their names on our faces; be sure of that. . (Ralph Waldo Emerson, 19th century American essayist)
Emerson continues “. . . thus, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping we are becoming.” What a sobering thought! So, the question is, what are we worshiping? What are the things we crave most—that we spend most time doing and that have become our priorities? If we are becoming like them, we desperately need to change.
Those who make idols are just like them, as are all who trust in them (Psalm 115:8). Come, let us worship and bow down. Let us kneel before the Lord our maker (Psalm 95:6).
