The Idol of Success

My Sunday School class has been looking at idols of the heart that can get in the way of effective parenting.  We studied Ezekial 14:1-16 and discovered that as long as there were idols in the hearts of the prophets, God let them have it their way. The results were not pretty.

One idol of the heart can be “success”.  My definition of success can certainly be a block to my dear daughter learning to be accountable to God.  I take things into my hands rather than allowing God’s might arms to handle the matter.  Why do I think I need to help out God?

Reaching her heart to want to please God is my job, by asking good questions.

This is a whole new mind set for me.  How are you doing with reaching the heart of your young people?
