Isaiah 44:19 NKJV
And no one considers in his heart, Nor is there knowledge nor understanding to say, " I have burned half of it in the fire, Yes, I have also baked bread on its coals; I have roasted meat and eaten it; And shall I make the rest of it an abomination? Shall I fall down before a block of wood?"

This passage in Isaiah is talking about a person who makes an idol god made out of wood. We can easily see how foolish worshiping an idol is. But are we just as foolish when we allow material things or other people to take precedence over our relationship with God? Is there knowledge or understanding to say, "These things, or these people are so limited in what they can do for me. They are temporary. Why am I bowing down to them instead of the true and living everlasting God?" Let us examine ourselves and ask for knowledge and understanding that will prevent us from making idols out of anyone or anything.
