You shall have no other gods before me.
If we’re finding peace of mind elusive, it may be because we’re looking for it in the wrong places.
Instead of seeking it in the God who owns the world, we may be seeking it in false gods that worm their way into our world.
If we worship the god of money, we’ll learn that there are things money can’t buy.
If we bow before the god of pleasure, we’ll discover that its thrills play out, and its passions are short-lived.
If we kneel before the god of science, we’ll find that while it has produced many good things, it has also fathered fears that it cannot calm.
It is shortsighted to depend on short-term gods. They don’t live up to their promises.
Adapt to changing times,
but hold tight to the unchanging God.
