“Their idols are silver and gold, the work of man’s hands. They have mouths, but they cannot speak; they have eyes, but they cannot see; they have ears, but they cannot hear; they have noses, but they cannot smell;” (Psalm 115:2-6)
Technology is an idol of this age. Sports and entertainment are idols of this age. We have many things that people worship and where does it get them? These things consume our time and take our minds off higher things. We listen to these dead gods and think that in them is life. Life comes only from the One who has created life. Come to the Lord and know that He alone is good and worthy.
Lord, clear my mind to see more clearly the truth that tools we have created answer no questions of meaning . Guide me in the way I should go that I would not be caught up in the nonsensical thinking of this world. You alone give life. Lead me to see that in You alone is meaning, hope and the only future that is good.
Lord Jesus, You have come to lead me into an abundant life. Teach me what I need to know that I may see more clearly the state of this world. Help me now and always to see through what this world offers that I may not fall prey to the false gods of this age. They are unthinking and uncaring. You alone have the words of eternal life. Lead me ever closer to You my Savior. Amen.
