Human beings are created for worship. The question is not if we will worship, but what we will worship. This is the basis of Pete Wilson’s new book, Empty Promises. The basic idea of this book is to point out the idols in our life that we so easily (and so often accidentally) substitute for genuine trust in God. Wilson explores how to identify your idols (yep, we all have them) and get yourself back on track.
Though I haven’t read his first book, Plan B, I am intrigued to read it. The pace of this book was very easy going. It seemed like Pete and I were sitting over coffee discussing how to trust God more and identify my idols. When you consider the idols that you may have, a few come to mind. Putting career before faith or being obsessed by physical beauty. You also want to check out some of the underlying issues as well. Dissatisfaction. Frustration. Heartbroken. Exhaustion. Burnout. Denominations.
