This afternoon, in more of my 90 day reading, I came across 2 Kings 17:41. It gave me chills.
Even while these people were worshiping the Lord, they were serving their idols. To this day their children and grandchildren continue to do as their ancestors did. (TNIV)
So while these nations feared the LORD, they also served their idols; their children likewise and their grandchildren, as their fathers did, so they do to this day. (NASB)
What a warning for Christians today. What a warning for me. I love, fear, and worship God. But do I have idols in my life that I’m serving at the same time? (Money? TV? My work? Gadgets? Busyness?) A good reminder to walk my talk 24/7. Especially since I don’t want to pass on such things to future generations.
In the grip of His grace,
