In the small group that my wife and I are a part of, the lesson a couple of weeks ago dealt with idolatry. Our small group leader handed out a piece of paper with four statements for us to fill in the blanks. These statements really penetrated my heart and helped clearly identify idols in my life. I share this here because of how profound the impact has been in my life. Trust that God can use this in your life as well.
The following statements can help you identify those things in your life that may be replacing God:
- When I need to be comforted, I seek _______________________________________.
- When I don’t get ___________________________________, I get angry or impatient.
- I’m willing to sin in order to get ____________________________________________.
- I spend most of my energy and time _______________________________________.
