Turning Blessings Into Idols – Ezekiel 16:16

Ezekiel 16:16 “You used the lovely things I gave you to make shrines for idols, where you played the prostitute. Unbelievable! How could such a thing ever happen?”

HR12174824-1

What is God saying to me?  I’m struck by the reality that we often take the blessings that God gives us and turn them into idols.  Maybe it is vocation, appearance, giftedness, a home, vacation, hobby or even a friend, spouse or child.

How will I obey?  How could this happen? Blessings become idols when we do not remember who gave them to us.  God says “You used the lovely things I gave to you… (italics mine)”  When we remember where the blessing comes from, we praise the creator, not the creature (Romans 1:25).

Who will I tell? Rebecca

Take a minute to thank God for the greatest blessings in your life.  Worship Him not them.
