Joshua 24:14-15

* The idol of approval- I want the approval of the people I’m talking to
* The idol of control- using gossip as a way to manipulate/control others
* The idol of reputation- I want to feel important so I put others down
* The idol of recognition- talking about others gets people to notice me.

* The idol of knowledge- talking about people is a way of showing I now more

2. When we experience God as slow

Isaiah 55:8-9

3. When God is present but unmanageable

Exodus 19:16-20

a) the trajectory of our relationship

b) the nature of God
