The discussions in this podcast can help us to be more insightful into the areas of our lives where we may create idols. With useful suggestions to guide us in questioning our motives and reasons for attributing importance to different aspects of our work, this is indeed a thought-provoking conversation.

"...what comes to mind when you think of an idol. Maybe you picture a meticulously-carved statue in a foreign temple or a golden calf that the Israelites worshiped in The Old Testament. Idols seem far removed from our professional lives, yet today idolatry is alive and well in most workplaces and industries. As Pastor Tim Keller said, "The heart is an idol factory." So identifying and knowing how to respond to workplace idols is essential to living a Christ-centered life on the job."
