What Is Your God?


I just read an excellent blog by Patrick Mead in which he argued that those things which we are unwilling to move are, in fact, our gods. He said, in part,

You see, what you cannot move is your god. That is how we reveal what our gods are. If you would rather have a family fight and split than change a holiday tradition, you have elevated the tradition above God’s charge for unity and mutual sacrifice and love. It is now your god. If sports – or band or a school club or a campground – can take you away from the community and you find a way to blame the community, you have revealed your god.

To read the entire post, go here. I think you will be glad you did – unless he happens to skewer one or more of your “sacred cows.” He does not mention the Super Bowl or March Madness – but he might well could have! Read his take on how we prioritize our lives – and then see if you can identify what is really your god.
