Passage: Matthew 6:19–6:34
The ancient world was full of idols and idolatry. If we are not careful, we can deceive ourselves and think idolatry is not a problem in our day and age. The reality is our idols may be more subtle today, but they are no less prevalent or damaging. In this week’s passage Jesus exposes the idols of money/materialism, worry, and control. We will see that he exposes them because they hurt us and they paint an inaccurate picture of our heavenly Father.
