In my earlier days as a Christian, I thought idols meant the carved out wooden idols etc. As I got older, it dawned on me that idols could mean anything from the movie star we admire to even our own ministry,…if we place it above God.

Because I enjoy painting, I find that I have to remind myself to always put God first. Without Him, I would not have the talents I have today. Everything is for His glory.

The Lord is a jealous God,
    filled with vengeance and rage.
He takes revenge on all who oppose him
    and continues to rage against his enemies! (Nahum 1:2 NLT)

Bible Verse

19When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, 21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

Galatians 5:20-21 (NLT)
