THE MATTER of IDOLS: Reflection by Cynthia Abegail


Since time immemorial, it is very evident that there is no higher commandment than:  "Love God with all your heart, soul and mind."  There must be no idols.  Idols are not only the carved images of false gods.  It could be anything that one considers the centre of one's life.


Therefore an idol could be love of fame, money, sport, creature or even pets.  By the time obsession sets in, the fascination begins.  If one's attention is diverted from love for God first, then the problem starts to accumulate!  Why?  Because we have violated already the first law of God.



One may say, "Well, I am just having some fun, is that wrong." The point is not a matter of having fun or not.  The point is:  Have we exchange God for another idol eg. love of money, obsession for a partner and so on?  Let us examine ourselves if we have love God first and foremost.  But it is not the end... God has unfathomable love and mercy so we just ask God's pardon and restart to love Him again!  There is no way,  God owns the universe and all that is in it!


Let us love God with all our being.  Let us worship Him for eternity.   That is our duty as His children.
