Big Idea: An idol is something you look to for things that only God can provide
The issue with idolatry isn't necessarily that we have too many gifts, it is that we value our gifts in the incorrect order! When we place the gift higher than the giver, we have an idolatry problem. We struggle because we think that these gifts will give us the satisfaction that we need when in fact God and only God will satisfy our most innate desires!
How can we overcome these idols? The antidote for this idolatry is to remember God!
An idol is anything that we look to for things that only God can provide. #iamgomer
You will always be disappointed when you value the gift above the giver. #iamgomer
Your idols will kill you. They cannot simply be removed. They must be replaced. #iamgomer
The gifts that God gives us are conduits to enjoy Him more! #ScandalousLove
