Family Idols, Family Alters

This week in our Beit Midrash Bible Study (what is the Word of the Lord speaking to your life right now) we studied Genesis 12. Stand out points: put away family idols. The bitterness, disappointment, anger, rituals that we grew up with, have cultivated, hold dear are being called by God to be no more. Build an alter to the Lord, memorialize what He has done; the new work, the fresh wind, the cleansing fire; His love, He has called you by name, you are His.
