For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
but the Lord made the heavens. – Psalm 96:5
Creation vs. Creator
In modern society most of us are inclined to idolise other humans. Perhaps because of their fame we look up to them and they become role-models for us who can in many cases shape our lives.
God is famous. God is a wonderful role-model. Why do less people worship Him than they do other human beings?
It is easy to fall into this trap, and yet when you stand back and look at how we glorify people on the same level as ourselves, it seems pretty ridiculous. God made us, and yet we choose not to praise Him. Instead we idolise what He has made…
When it comes down to it, why are we worshiping the creation much more than the creator Himself?
