Why do we Idolize Celebrities?

Humans have a tendency to worship.

We worship money. We worship famous people. We worship cars, houses, jewelry.

Sports teams. Actors and actresses. Singers.

We worship ourselves.

In ancient times, people worshipped the sun, the stars, the moon, rocks, rivers.

God, our Creator knows this great need in us to worship. Notice how the FIRST Commandment out of ten is:

“You shall have no other gods before me.” Exodus 20:3

Knowing our inner needs and wants, He created us to worship. But we worship everything and everyone, except God.

Check your life today. Do you worship something or someone above God? Are there idols you treasure so much that you can’t imagine your life without them? We all have this craving. I know I do. Yet, don’t substitute it for Who we truly need to worship. And that The One who made us wanting to worship.

God bless you!
