One idol crossed off the list

I came across this unique story yesterday. A minor league rising baseball star chooses to go into the priesthood over the big leagues. I just started Counterfeit Gods by Tim Keller last night and couldn’t help but think, “Well, I guess baseball is not this dude’s god.” But one of his early definitions of an idol is any thing-even a good thing-that becomes an ultimate thing. So unfortunately good things like ministry, children (although I guess Catholic priests don’t have to worry about that one), and influence will still vie for his and our affections.
