Sometime in the early 90’s, I began attending Redeemer Presbyterian Church. I believe I went the first time when a friend from my home town was visiting New York City. In ’94, I was married, my wife was later baptized at Redeemer. Only recently, I finally discarded the boxes of cassette tapes with my favorite Tim Keller sermons (thankfully most of them are now online, many free).
While I now attend church on Long Island, my family does manage to visit Redeemer a few times each year. In between visits, I truly value reading Tim Keller’s tweets. Each a little nugget that weaves nicely into where I’m at on my journey as a Christ Follower in progress. I retweet the ones I want to be able to refer back to at a later date.

Money, itself, isn’t usually an idol. What you put your money towards does show you where your idols are.
