The Heart is an Idol-Making Factory

“The human heart is a factory of idols.” – John Calvin

We tend to think of idols as little wooden gods or golden shrines, but that is not really what Calvin is talking about.

An idol is anything that takes the place of God in your life.

Chuck Lawless writes about some idols that you may not have considered were even capable of being idols. Such as: bitternness, fame, unforgiveness, relationships, position, lust, worry, pain, social media, info, control, and your ministry.

Wow! Talk about convicting.
