Psalm 135

Powerful God vs. Worthless Idols

I like how this Psalm contrasts God’s power with the vain nature of idols and idol worshipers. This makes me wonder if, at least to some extent, many of us are idolaters. Sometimes we assign a lot of significance to perceived status, career advancement, money, level of education, etc. All of these things are so temporal and fleeting and ultimately never really satisfy us. Yet we still crave, and in a sense, worship these things. We spend a lot of time and energy doing this, but that effort would be better used praising God and trying to carry out his will.
