From the Carpenter's Bench:

My children, keep yourself safe from false Gods - John 5;21

Cecil B. DeMille was a famous Hollywood director. After filming The Ten Commandments, he was asked, "What commandment do you think people break the most today?" He replied, "The first one: 'Worship no god but me... Do not bow down to any idol.' It's the one Israel broke first, and it's the one we still break most." DeMille hastened to clarify that we don't bow down to idols of metal and stone. Rather, we bow down to idols of flesh, fame, and money.

We often get caught up in the fame and fortune of others, however, what really matters in your life? Keep God, Family, and Community at the heart of your being and you cannot go wrong. They say when things go wrong you really find out who your friends are. How true, I know that I will always have the support of God, my family, and my friends!

What is one idol in my life that I am tempted to bow down to?

Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions...they become your character. - Frank Outlaw

Let us remember we are in the holy presence of God
Saint Joseph our guide and guardian
Live Jesus in our hearts
