I catch myself, sometimes
thinking my idol isn’t that big of deal.
It is only a little sin,
right?
Surely God understands
I am only human.
True holiness is beyond me,
so a little sin is expected.
Not a huge thing,
really,
these idols of mine.

And then there is Jehu. Re-read 2 Kings 10:18-27. This is how God takes care of idols. He gathers them together and tears through the house so not one of them lives. He knows the dangers idols pose, and His jealousy for our healthy spiritual lives will not allow the idols to stand. In order for God to be Lord in our lives, He must destroy the idols.

It won’t be comfortable, but let Him clean the house. Let not one of the idols live.
