“These people have committed a great sin, and have made for themselves a god of gold?” Exodus 32:31. Even after escaping brutal slavery and having seen the Lord’s power and glory mightily displayed, the Israelites had quickly allowed their hearts to stray from Him. The writer of Hebrews reminds us of God’s anger over this idolatry and those who “go astray in their heart” (Hebrews 3:10). God’s Word makes it clear we are to worship “no other gods”. If you want anything more than you want God, it is an idol.
