What’s Really Important

Is what you focus on most

Like a scarecrow in a melon patch, their idols cannot speak; they must be carried because they cannot walk. Do not fear them; they can do no harm nor can they do any good. Jeremiah 10:5

We can place a scarecrow in our garden, and it will scare away the birds, but the key is we must place it in the garden. It can do nothing unless we do our part first.

An idol is anything—an inanimate object, another person, possessions, money, even our own self—we care more about than we care about God. If anything is more important to you than God, it can be considered an idol. Sadly, none of those things—nothing—can do us any real good. But the good news is they can’t harm us either unless we put them ahead of God.

God is an awesome God who loves us and wants only the best for us. Idols of any kind are merely things that get between us and God. No matter how powerful they may seem, don’t be afraid to put them in their place. As long as God is your focus in life, nothing can harm you!
