Read … You shall have no other gods before me. Exodus 20:3
Remember … You, O Lord, are great and greatly to be praised. You are mighty in power and above all things.
Respond … I cannot believe that I put other things before You. Forgive me for this idolatry. Anything that is more important to me than You is a sin. I’m so sorry.
Reflect … Thank You for the satisfaction You bring me. I am so grateful for the abundance of who You are. Thank You for loving me so much!
Renew … Help Your people – the church – turn from idols. We don’t see ourselves as idolators, but we are when we place things before You. Please return Your church to a place where worship overflows as a result of our love for You.
Whatever your heart clings to and confides in, that is really your God, your functional savior. – Martin Luther
