Can man make for himself gods?
Such are not gods!” (Jeremiah 16:20 ESV)
In Jeremiah’s day Israel was guilty of making gods out of wood to worship like the people of the nations around them. God is now calling them out. Is our day much different? Do we not worship those things that the people around us worship? When around successful we worship success; when around people who value education we worship education. When around people who think much of money we worship money. It is a deadly and deceiving sin. The sad thing is that we don’t see it for what it is, the worship of gods that have been made by man.
