Erick Erickson has some good thoughts for the first day of Holy Week:
Let’s start this week with one particular thought that so many of the so called wise will reject as stupid, but which is absolute fact.
Every man, woman, and child in this world has a god. Even atheists have gods. It may not be the actual risen Lord, but everyone has a god.
People need gods. It may be a job. It may be a drug. It may be family. It may be a hobby. Each person’s god may be different and it may even be yourself. But everyone puts their faith in something and it becomes their god whether they believe it or not.
In this day and age, many secularists have converted creation itself into their god and they worship God’s creation in place of God himself.
Where do you give your time, your talent, and your treasure? Where is your focus?
Where ever that might be, it most likely is your god.
