The problems we have in our lives have nothing to do with not knowing the right techniques or strategies or skills. Rarely will they have anything to do with another person or our environment.
Whether it’s problems with marriage, friends, parents, children, school, work, sex, food, alcohol, drugs, laziness, entertainment, overworking, or anything else, it all boils down to worship. The problem is that we worship the wrong things. We worship created things, instead of the Creator God.
Our hearts are idol factories. Every minute of the day, we want to worship something. And until we worship Jesus, our hearts will continue to churn out idols in mass production.
