Leviticus 26:1 – 26 ‘You shall not make for yourselves idols, nor shall you set up for yourselves an image or a sacred pillar, nor shall you place a figured stone in your land to bow down to it; for I am the Lord your God.
In our society, we have a tendency to idolize and worship celebrities and professional athletes. From fan clubs, pictures and autographs, there are entire industries built upon our fascination and idolizaiton of people. Because of who they are, we place them on pedestals. I am not criticizing any celebrities of professional athletes, but is that who we really should be worshipping?
In today’s passage, the Lord reminds us that “I am the Lord your God”. God gives us a gentle reminder that if we are to worship anyone, we should worship the creater of the universe and all things in it. If we cannot worship God who is perfect, then how can we worship imperfect people? I challenge you today to spend time acknowledging God for who He is in your life and in this world. As you do, you will find that there are many reasons why we should worship God and only God.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
