Idols: There are so many of them

In the form of bank accounts
and status
and image
and safety
and comfort
and power
and reassurance
and security
and prosperity
and prestige
and honor
and reassurance
and schedules
and drama
and control
and tranquility:

The list of idols goes on forever;
it’s a wonder we make it to the altar of the Lord at all
