What We Do When We Aren’t Satisfied with God: Sin and Idolatry

In his excellent book Future Grace, John Piper teaches that “sin is what you do when you are not fully satisfied in God.”  The same may be said about idolatry: It is what we do when we are not fully satisfied in God.  In other words, if we are not fulfilled and secure in God, we will inevitably seek other sources of happiness and security.
