In America, we don’t cast idols of gods to proudly place on our mantles. We do something a bit more insidious: we put our trust and faith in things like our money, power, prestige, success, influence, sports teams, addictions, relationships, and popular personalities. These things don’t scream “false god” like a carved idol. They are harder to see because we don’t proudly display our idols for everyone to see. They are virtually invisible. They are for private viewing only.
God knows what our idols are. He knows how easily we fall for them and for the power and protection they claim to offer.
God wants you to know, if you are really interested in the best, you don’t need to invest in anything or anyone but Him. There can be only one, and God is the One!
