Goods vs. Ultimates

It is a balancing act to remain focused on the "main things" in life.

My nasty sin nature is sorely tempted to dive into an interest--
and dislodge the Lord from His place in my life.

I can easily become wrapped up in my passions
and quickly find myself worshipping an idol,  a functional-god.

I found this quote by Tim Keller this week,

"Sin isn’t only doing bad things, it is more fundamentally making good things into ultimate things. Sin is building your life and meaning on anything, even a very good thing, more than on God."

Veganism is a good thing in my life.
Lord help me resist making it an ultimate thing.
