Read Zephaniah 1 today.

In this chapter we read about the God’s coming judgement (600+ BC). We might think God was going to judge the people of Judah differently from the rest of the nations, but that is not the case. The other nations have chased after idols and failed to acknowledge God. Judah should have known better, but they have abandoned true worship of God.
One of the messages of Zephaniah seems to be that one’s heritage, or birthright, or reputation, or family name, or ethnic group, or whatever other advantage we may claim does not give us a free pass to worship idols. Most of us would never actually bow down to a physical idol to worship it. But I think idolatry is often more subtle. It is the little thing that draws our attention away from acknowledging God.
Consider this: during an average day, how often does any thought of who God is, what God has done, or what God is doing come to your mind? Has acknowledging God been pushed out of most of your day? What might you do to stay ‘continually aware’ of God?
Zephaniah 1:2-6 NLT
“I will sweep away everything from the face of the earth,” says the LORD. [3] “I will sweep away people and animals alike. I will sweep away the birds of the sky and the fish in the sea. I will reduce the wicked to heaps of rubble, and I will wipe humanity from the face of the earth,” says the LORD. [4] “I will crush Judah and Jerusalem with my fist and destroy every last trace of their Baal worship. I will put an end to all the idolatrous priests, so that even the memory of them will disappear. [5] For they go up to their roofs and bow down to the sun, moon, and stars. They claim to follow the LORD, but then they worship Molech, too. [6] And I will destroy those who used to worship me but now no longer do. They no longer ask for the LORD’s guidance or seek my blessings.
