giving credit where it's due...

Isaiah 2:1-10

V8 Their land is filled with idols; they bow down to the work of their hands, to what their won fingers have made.

We can look around at the things we own, or our bank accounts, or our pantrys and think we have it made. We are doing ok. Yet, we never acknowledge that all good flows from God’s hand to ours. We assume that “we” have amassed all this, and that “we” have made sure we have enough. Yet, if God had not willed us to have it we would not. It’s a pretty vain statement for us to make that gives us any credit to what “we” have achieved. But that’s exactly what Isaiah is talking about here. The Children of Israel were basking in all the things that had achieved and had forgotten the God that gave it to them. Sounds familiar right?
