Do you get the picture… Idolizing… Idols… American Idol….. hahahahaha. On a serious note there’s several scriptures on idol worship. Exodus 20:3 says it best and to the point.
“You shall have no other gods before me.”
– an image or representation of a god used as an object of worship.
– a person or thing that is greatly admired, loved, or revered
This topic was one of the requests someone gave me! I think It’s great. You may not even realize you’re idolizing people or things, even may not realize you’re putting them before God. Idols can be music, singers, celebrities, people around you, yourself, tv shows. Especially in today’s times we have to be careful with all the things we have at our fingertips. The first step is taking a look at your life and seeing what you’re putting first. What you’re spending the most time doing or who you’re doing it with. You could be putting yourself before God. Netflix, YouTube, and any other social media platforms can be great things or be abused. God makes it simple when he says, put no one else before him. Take a step back and discern what it is that needs to go!
God I remove myself from the pedistool. I remove anyone or anything I’ve put in front of you, or in place of you. Forgive me. I choose you. You come first.
