Then It is an Idol.

Little children (believers, dear ones), guard yourselves from idols—[false teachings, moral compromises, and anything that would take God’s place in your heart] 1 John 5:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

You spend time with that which you love.

Now, ask yourself this question: do I spend as much time with Jehovah as I do watching sports and playing them? If not, that is an idol in your life. There is nothing wrong with sports, it is good for your physical body but it is imperative that you nurture your spiritual body more because it lasts for an eternity.

Are you just as concerned with looking spiritually beautiful to the our Heavenly Beloved as much as you are looking appealing to the world? Jehovah desires you to look spiritually beautiful which continuously grows as you mature in Him while fleshly beauty fades. Besides, do you seriously enjoy someone looking at you like a appealing piece of meat?

Do you take as much care of your spiritual health as you do your car? The car only lasts a few short years and you have to get a new one. Your spirit lasts for an eternity.

If anything becomes more fundamental than God to your happiness, meaning in life, and identity, then it is an idol. Tim Keller

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) I pray that You warn me when my heart begins to place any thing or one above You. I love You too much to ever want to insult You and hurt You with these foolish actions. I humbly request this in the name of He who loved me so much He went to the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  1. I personally identify idolatry as “anything that causes me to disobey God.” Otherwise, I feel free to enjoy the good gifts and people God has placed in my life. But it is, indeed, vitally important that we value our relationship with God firstly.
