The One I Couldn't Shake

Oh man!  These passages rocked my world today.  Especially the part about Hezekiah pulverizing the bronze serpent that Moses had made.  How often do we let good, even God-given, things become obstacles to God's work?  We should be constantly vigilant against turning gifts into idols.  It's a bit of a lengthy read, but worth every second of your time.  I've posted links to The Message, because that's the version I read today and it was awesome!

This made me think of Jonah 2:8

"Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs"

What "grace" are we missing because we're clinging to old traditions for tradition's sake.

Thanks for the reminder.
