Bible Text: Exodus 3:1-15, Psalm 63:1-8, 1 Corinthians 10:1-13, Luke 13:1-9 | The Rev. Canon Ellis E. Brust
When we give our primary attention to other matters, things go wrong, sometimes terribly wrong. We all too easily make idols out of people, personal goals, situations, problems, worries, fears – all the things we’re not to worship. I offer just two examples from the Bible:
- David was a mighty man of God, until he was tempted to turn his eyes where they did not belong.
- When Jesus called Peter out of the boat to walk on water, he was doing fine, until he let the storm take his focus off Jesus.
Where are you like David? Where are you like Peter? Then, think of the old revivalist hymn, “Turn your eyes upon Jesus… and the things of earth will go strangely dim.”
