Morning Direction From Scripture 11-13-16

I hate those who worship worthless idols.
    I trust in the Lord.
I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love,
    for you have seen my troubles, Psalm 31:6,7

How does the sin of idolatry affect our ability to trust in the Lord?

  1. Wow, this is amazing–Pastor Robert Morris (Southlake, TX–Gateway Church) preached this morning on exactly this!!
    To answer your question–idolatry causes distance, loss of intimacy with the Lord–and how can we trust someone we aren’t in intimate communion with? We can’t.

    • It’s an interesting question Dawn. Our culture is blowing in a hurricane of hate and has been for the last year. Jesus told us that he was leaving us a new command, “to love one another.” and that we were to even “love those who tortured (or persecuted) us.” I see no place for hatred of individuals in the Scripture. I do see a place for hating the acts that people do which destroy themselves and others but I see the only solution to those acts being the remedy of love. As Paul the Apostle wrote we are to overcome evil with good.
      I was hoping someone would ask the question. 🙂
