What’s at the Hub? Questions to Discern the Idols of our Heart

Yesterday, as part of the Family Altar series, we explored those things that might be at the hub of our home other than God’s love. If God is not at the hub of our families, then there are others things that we are looking towards to build a life on. The Scripture calls those things idols.

Below are some diagnostic questions to help you to identify the idols in your own life.


1.  Look at your loves.

What in your life, other than God, are you looking to for ultimate security, satisfaction and significance?


2.  Look at how you spend your alone time.

What in your life do you find yourself constantly thinking about when you are doing nothing at all?  What does you mind imagine, fantasize and continually turn towards?


3.  Look at how you spend your money.

Our dollars and cents speak volumes about our heart.  Where do your dollars go?


4.  Look at your most uncontrollable emotions.

What in your life, if stripped from you, would cause you deep anxiety, unrest, fear, insecurity or anger?
