1 John 5:21

"Dear Children, keep yourselves from idols." NIV

"Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen." KJV

When we think of idols, we tend to envision statues, big
and small, made of precious stones or metals that are
believed to have spiritual powers. How many of us have
that kind of idol to pull us away from the true and living
God? An idol can be anything, any person, any place, any
spiritual philosophy that captures our affection and our
trust, putting God the Creator in any place other than
first. How many of us have that kind of idol?

Heavenly Father, please help us to have spiritual eyes
to see if there are any idols in our lives that keep you
from being first and foremost in our lives. Forgive us
if we have allowed other things to become our god, we
repent of that sin, and give you our whole hearts. In
Jesus' name. Amen.
