This is what the Lord says:
“Do not learn the ways of the nations or be terrified by signs in the heavens,
though the nations are terrified by them.
For the practices of the peoples are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest,
and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel.
They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails
so it will not totter.
Like a scarecrow in a cucumber field, their idols cannot speak;
they must be carried because they cannot walk.
Do not fear them; they can do no harm
nor can they do any good.”
– Jeremiah 10:2-5
Our idols today may not look quite like the idols the Israelites worshipped, but we have them. And they are every bit as evil and in need of being smashed to bits, ground into a fine powder, and burned in the fire. What are your idols? Pornography, junk food, TV, your sports team, work, an actual graven image carved out of wood and overlaid with bronze, silver or gold?
It’s time to destroy them.
