What Profit is an Idol?Mike Johnson, August 15, 2021
Part of the Habakkuk: Trusting God in Troubled Times series
Habakkuk 2:18–20 (Listen)
18 “What profit is an idol
when its maker has shaped it,
a metal image, a teacher of lies?
For its maker trusts in his own creation
when he makes speechless idols!
19 Woe to him who says to a wooden thing, Awake;
to a silent stone, Arise!
Can this teach?
Behold, it is overlaid with gold and silver,
and there is no breath at all in it.
20 But the LORD is in his holy temple;
let all the earth keep silence before him.”
