American Idols

“Sportswriters calculate that the year after Michael Jordan retired (the second time), he earned from his endorsements more than twice as much as all U.S. presidents earned for all of their terms combined. He earned more endorsing Nike shoes than all the workers in Malaysia who made the shoes.”(1)

We are designed by God to worship. Unfortunately, we often worship the wrong things, like famous athletes, celebrities, wealth, beauty, intellect and power.

It’s no wonder that one of our most popular television shows is called "American Idol." 

But we can worship good things like health and family too. We do this when we give our heart first and foremost to good things, making God secondary.  

“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” Proverbs 4:23,NLT

Today let's ask God if we are valuing anything or anyone too much.
(1) Philip Yancey, Rumours, Zondarvan, 2003, p.34
