Success and accomplishment are good things. But when you make them the ultimate thing, and failure is not an option, you can never miss a practice, never let someone down, never get anything less than an A, never get passed over for promotion, never let a ball drop…you’re now enslaved to success. The main problem with this idol is that it makes people very busy. They are always running so hard and hustling to feel like they matter that many times they’re too busy for church. ‘I’d love to be there, but we have soccer, I gotta work late, gotta study, gotta get the house clean, gotta hit the gym.’ When you make achievement an idol, it can’t save you. You will never be able to do enough. Jesus is the only one who can save.
