What is an idol? An idol is something or someone in your life that becomes more important to you than Christ.

We need to make sure that the things that we have... don't have us.

In the bible when Jesus was on the earth, He talked more about money than heaven and hell... put together! That's how important it is that money does not become an idol to us. (Even though I hardly ever have any money, it can still beome a big idol).

Being discontent is a big way to have an idol. Most of the time when we are discontent, the thing that we want is an idol.

So what do we do with our idols? Try to get rid of them ourselves?

First we pray...
Then we work on puting our focus on God.
When we are not saved, the problem is not that we need to get rid of idols (which, by the way we can't) What we need to do is turn all of our focus onto God so that we will "see everything else as garbage (or rubbish)." (That's somewhere in the bible, I just don't know where:)). Because when we were in our dead bodies, we couldn't do anything! What can a dead man do?... nothing.

It's all God.
