You must not make for yourself an idol of any kind....
If you missed yesterday, I'm going to go through the 10 Commandments and talking about each one.
This is the second commandment: You must not make any idol--
Great! (I say.... ). I don't have any golden calves around that I bow down too.
But wait..... an idol is something you worship. Something you put before God----
Wait a minute....
Could a computer be considered an idol? (Yes, if it takes away from God)
Can the TV or a hobby become an idol? (Yes, if you let it).
So far.... I'm 2 for 2 in the 'breaking' of the commandments, and we've just started. And here I thought I was a *good* person lol.
The point of this is to see how hard it is to obey the 10 Commandments completely and how much we fail (or I fail) even if we (I) don't mean too. This is why we have to examine ourselves daily to make sure we don't put anything before God.
It's ok to have hobbies and things that make you happy, we just have to make sure they don't start taking over our lives and taking time away from God.
God Bless You and Happy Valentine's Day (sorry this post today wasn't about love. I kinda dropped the ball on that one...)
