Choose Life

Psalm 135:15-18

Exodus 32:1-6

In Moses’ absence Aaron fashioned a golden calf for the Israelites to worship. He told them that this would be the god that they would serve.

The thought is mind boggling. People were actually praying to this statue. It couldn’t see. It couldn’t hear. It wasn’t living! How ridiculous it seems.

Houses.

Cars.

Toys.

Money.

None of this is living either. Still yet some people choose to serve it. They become obsessed with it. Dedicating their lives to it.

To some people this type of material has become their idol.

But be glad because you have chosen a God that is alive. The God that lives and reigns forever more. He hears our prayers. He looks upon us as though we are the apple of his eye. He speaks to us. He is alive and well. He has always been and always will be. He is the great I Am.

Serving lifeless idols will get you nowhere. Serving the One True God will afford you life most abundant with an eternity spent with Him.

Worldly Goods

Luke 15:11-13

Colossians 3:2

The father wept as his youngest son left home. His son had chosen material possessions over his family. The lure of having the best of everything and living high class was worth more to the son than the relationships that had taken a lifetime to cultivate.

Material possessions. Worldly goods. They had clouded this man’s vision.
It’s easy for us to see that from the outside looking in.

But what if we’re the ones being consumed? Have you taken a self-inventory lately?

The bible teaches that we are to set our affections on Him, not the things of the earth.

What drives you? Are you sacrificing something priceless for something that can be bought?
