Gideon made a sacred ephod from the gold and put it in Ophrah, his home town. But soon all the Israelites prostituted themselves by worshipping it, and it became a trap for Gideon and his family.
Judges 8:27 NLT
I don’t get attached to things but I do spend too much time with them, especially when it’s technology. Things like computers and tablets and mobile phones are an aid to my life, and that’s the way they should remain. Unfortunately, I can let them keep me sitting in front of them all the time so that they get attached to me! They consume me and keep me from the things I should be doing. Even when I’m using them to read the Bible they can become the centre of focus as I go down the line of seeing how much I can do with the technology rather than how much I can do with the Word.
Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ. (PHP 3:8 NLT)
That is something I really need to change!
