Romans 1:25 For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
How foolish it is to worship something you, yourself made. Why would you worship a piece of wood or stone that somebody carved? But an idol can be more than that. In fact, we all have idols in our lives. An idol is anything we worship in place of the one true God. It could something like the tv, or food, or a spouse or even one of your kids. Don’t let anything stand in the way of worshiping God and Him alone
A great book to read on this is, God’s at War, by Kyle Idleman.
