1 John 5

Daily Devotional from 1 John 5--

Verse 21
Little children, keep yourselves from idols.

John Calvin famously said, “the human heart is an idol factory.” There’s just no way around it. We are hard-wired for worship. If Jesus is not the object of your devotion and affection, you will manufacture little deities. Causes and careers will be your idols and icons. Hobbies and pursuits will be your gods and goddesses. People and self will become your infatuation and fetish. However, Psalm 16:4 duly warns us that sorrows will multiply for those who run after another god. Therefore, listen to the apostle of love, and reserve your greatest affection for the one who saves your soul.
