All right then, Joshua said, destroy the idols among you, and turn your hearts to the LORD, the God of Israel. – Joshua 24:23 (NLT)
Most times, people place treasured items or special trophies onto their mantle, (a shelf or outside covering of a fireplace) symbolizing an accomplishment, value or a source of pride. Now I’m usually not much of a fireplace person and most times I’d rather opt out of having a fireplace in a home or apartment. But depending on the layout, if I had the choice of having the fireplace with the symmetrical built-ins, then hey you’ve got yourself a deal! I mean the fireplace, is the heart of the home, so why not go for the whole nine, right? But just like the mantel is the heart of most homes and showcase our most prized possessions in the natural realm, so are our hearts and minds in the spiritual realm. So I dare to ask you, what’s on your mantel?
