"Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry." NIV

"Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry." KJV

Some of us have wrong impressions about idolatry. Of course we don't bow down and worship statues and charms. We don't pray to the stars or to the sun. Idolatry can be very innocent looking and subtly deceiving. Anything in all of creation can become an idol to us if we allow it to. Anything that is more important to us than God is an idol. It could be our church or pastor. It could be our children or any of our possessions. Let's ask God to examine us and reveal to us if we have any idols in our lives.

Heavenly Father, how we need for You to examine our hearts and for us to examine ourselves to see if there is anything in us that we hold more dear than You. If there is, help us to rid ourselves of the ungodly love we have for these idols and put them in their proper perspectives. We want You to be first in our lives, above all else. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.

Money, sex, status, physical appearance, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, food, position, possessions, titles, and the beat goes on. Idol worship is everywhere.
