Most idols are innocuous, and most worship doesn’t happen in a pew. An idol’s power lies in its ability to embed itself into the fabric of your life. Idols come to life when they make themselves normal, ordinary, invisible.
Where are the invisible idols in your life? What seems routine, natural, even taken-for-granted in the world? Those things that we assume or ignore may have more of a hold on our hearts than we realize.
Following Jesus is hard. If discipleship fits too neatly into your life, you may need to check and see who you’re following.
