Jesus, cast a look on me. Give me sweet simplicity. Make me poor and keep me low. Seeking only Thee to know.

"According to the Bible, anything we worship–other than God himself–is an idol. Idolatry is centering our attention and affection on something, or someone, smaller than God. In fact, most idols are good things in our lives that we turn into ultimate things, things that take God’s place as we unconsciously depend on them to give our lives meaning and security. This is what John Calvin meant when he said that the human heart is an idol-making factory–taking good things and making them into idols that end up defining us.”
Tullian Tchividjian’s book, Surprised By Grace
