What is Worth Less?

  Read how the psalmist describes an idol and see if you can think of anything that is worth less than it. "They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not: they have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not: they have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat" (Psalm 115:5-7). People have actually made such things and called them their gods.

  Look what else the psalmist said about those who make them. "They that make them are like them; so is everyone that trusteth in them." It is so pathetic that intelligent people could ever put something, anything, before the true and living God. Yet, this is a major folly of humankind.
