Your Old Idols

I recently picked up Jesus + Nothing = Everything by Tullian Tchividjian.  It was on sale for 99 cents and I really enjoyed one of his other books – Glorious Ruin – so I bought it.

It’s not your old life you want back; it’s your old idols you want back, and I love you too much to give them back to you.

He wrote that and I just laughed.  I laughed because I knew that feeling.  So many times I have wanted some of my old idols back.  I have tried to pull them out of the closet but these idols do not have the same glory they once held.  They will never be the same.
