“Son of man, these men have set up idols in their heart!” Ezekiel 14:3

“Their hearts were devoted to their idols!” Ezekiel  20:16

Thank God for the comforts and blessings of this life, but do not let them become your idols!

Whatever a man depends upon,
or rules his mind,
whatever governs his affections,
or whatever is the chief object of his delight
–is his god.

If you worship a god of gold, you will perish as much as if you worshiped a god of mud!

Or If you love anything better than God, you are idolaters!

If there is anything you would not give up for God, it is your idol.

Because If there is anything that you seek with greater fervor than you seek the glory of God, that is your idol.

That for which you live, is your idol.

Man is such an idolater that, if he cannot idolize anything else, he will idolize himself, and set himself up, and bow down and worship himself!

Conversion means a turning from every idol.

If we are, indeed, Christians, then we have broken a great many idols. We have still some more to break, and we must keep the hammer going until they are all broken!

If we had no idols in children, friends, wealth, ourselves–we would not need half the trials we have. Foolish idols make rods for foolish backs!

If God sees us making idols of anything, He will either break our idols, or break us. Whatever a man depends upon

Cast out the idols from your hearts. Let them all go.
Love no one else and nothing else, as you love Him.

“Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.” 1 John 5:21
