Few of us would say we struggle with the sin of idolatry, but almost all of us do. Idolatry takes on so many forms that it is difficult to recognize. The fact is, most of us would be unaware if not for someone else pointing out the issue in our life. The hard truth is Jesus plainly said we cannot serve two masters; He said we would love one and hate the other (Matthew 6:24).
Therefore, if we are falling prey to idolatry, we are introducing a second master into our lives. This means we love it more than we love Christ. We would never say it like that, but our lives reveal the truth.
