What idols are in your home that you need to get rid of?

By Scott Brown of NCFIC

"This morning in our family devotions we saw in Genesis 34:2-4, a father (Jacob) appealing to his children to abandon their idols, change their garments, and make a new start. We talked about how God has given us a new day, to identify our idols and sins and begin afresh.
"And Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, "Put away the foreign gods that are among you, purify yourselves, and change your garments. Then let us arise and go up to Bethel; and I will make an altar there to God, who answered me in the day of my distress and has been with me in the way which I have gone." So they gave Jacob all the foreign gods which were in their hands, and the earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the terebinth tree which was by Shechem.

What a great way to start your day. What idols do you and your children need to rid your lives and home of today?
