    Matthew Henry rightly opined that, "The sin we are most in danger of is giving the glory and honour to any creature which are due to God only.
    .
    Pride makes a god of self, covetousness makes a god of money, sensuality makes a god of their belly; whatever is esteemed or loved , feared or served , delighted in or depended on, more than God, that (whatever it is) we do in effect make a god of.'' How free are you from idolatry? Are you not giving the honour due to God to somebody?

    If you are proud of your beauty, talents, intellect, family background and achievement instead of giving the honour to God, that is idolatry.

    Examine yourself. What do you esteem, fear or depend on, more than God? Has your devotion to the internet, mobile phone, games and pleasure of the flesh taken God's place in your life? Remember, Gideon was bold enough to destroy idols set up by his father but could not destroy his own idol (ephod), which became a snare to him. Pull down your self- made idol today before it destroys you.

    Challenge: Destroy your self-made idol now.

    Prayer: Lord, show me all the secret idols that I need to destroy.

    Quote: How free are you from idolatry?
