Real value…

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans

Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome.

Isaiah 2:18-22

And the idols shall utterly pass away.

And people shall enter the

caves of the rocks

 and the holes of the ground,

 from before the terror of the LORD,

and from the splendor of his majesty,

when he rises to terrify the earth.

In that day mankind will cast away their idols of silver and their idols of gold,

 which they made for themselves to worship,

 to the moles and to the bats,

to enter the caverns of the rocks

 and the clefts of the cliffs,

 from before the terror of the LORD,

and from the splendor of his majesty,

when he rises to terrify the earth.

Stop regarding man

 in whose nostrils is breath,

for of what account is he?

Today there is much in the way of worshipping that which is made by man.  We see praise going out for manmade objects; we see a form of worship for the ‘celebrity’.  We honor them  with praise, time and money.  Many examples of putting our faith and trust in money and armed forces for security and hope can be given.  But all of that disintegrates with time.  Celebrities pass on in death, money systems fail, governments are brought down by force and by inner disputes.  In the end, when the dust clears only the Lord remains and His word.  So truly the question can be asked; “who is man that you are mindful of him…?”  Isaiah says, “Stop regarding man…”

Let us be ever alert, watchful of the infiltration of anything in our lives that would begin to replace or displace the Lord God.  When all else in our lives is removed; we only have our relationship with Christ left.
