Son of man, these men have set up idols in their hearts and put wicked stumbling blocks before their faces. Should I let them inquire of me at all? ~ Ezekiel 14:3
Reading this made me think, we often consider idols made of wood and stone, but we seldom think of the idols we set up in our hearts. The idols God speaks of here are any and all things we consider more important than, or that we put before God.
Idols can be money, drugs, drink, sex, even family...ANYTHING we place more importance on than we do God.
As difficult as it is in this materialistic, selfish culture we've created, it is our duty to put God first in everything we do. He should be more important to us, pleasing Him should be more important to us than ANYTHING!
