There is nothing and no one greater or more important than God. This is a concept we may understand intellectually, but still fail to apply to our lives. An idol is anything or anyone that we give higher priority to than God, and in these end times, everywhere we look we see people who have set up idols for themselves. We must beware of giving anything or anyone else more value than God, because this is the definition of idolatry. God wants to be first in our lives; there is nothing and no one on earth that can sustain and supply us like He can. God gives us life; therefore, it is always dangerous to replace Him and worship something or someone else. We stay safe when we make sure to put Him first.
