New to this whole blogging thing. I waste too much time doing pointless things so I decided I would start this blog and MAYBE just maybe someone could one day benefit from something that I write on here. Anyways, love to you all. I will leave you with this. This is an excerpt from Tim Keller's "Counterfeit Gods". He is speaking on suffering, and how many times when God removes idols from our lives, it can be painful --
"People who have never suffered in life have less empathy for others, little knowledge of their own shortcomings and limitations, no endurance in the face of hardship, and unrealistic expectations for us. As the New Testament book of Hebrews tells us, anyone God loves experiences hardship (Hebrews 12:1-8)."
Pick up this book. Every Christian, especially in America struggles with idolatry. Let's get our priorities back in line.
