Psalm 106:

36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.

37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,

38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.

39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.

40 Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.

41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them.

What are our idols?

What things do we prize enough to ignore the moral violations inherent in pursuing them?

Do we sacrifice human lives in pursuit of our idols?

We might actually change our behavior if we had to choose the 13 who would die each year. Maybe not.
