Empty Gods

Deuteronomy 29:16-29

Reading through the history of God’s people, many of the things they did make little sense to us, especially setting up statues and worshiping them. Culturally it is easy for us to think that not many in their right mind would, for example, worship a golden statue of a calf today. It’s also easy for us to take this as evidence that we simply do not deal with the worship of other gods in this day and age. It would be easy but it would also be false. The truth is such a temptation is just as strong (if not stronger) today.

In our consumeristic world, we are given many things that can potentially become gods in our lives, from hollow philosophies to plain old “stuff.” There is much that promises us a happier life with less stress or more friends or more monetary fulfillment. This is usually by means of selfishness and always bound to eventually break down, turning to dust like everything else. God continues to urge God’s people to turn away from these things to the only one who fulfills eternally.
