Solomon lost his place with God when he turned his heart to strange gods. While his gods may seem obviously false to us, there are likely things in our lives that we worship or place at the center of our lives.

What are my strange gods/ idols today? A wrong, overemphasized focus on sports, social media, vacations and more can distort my heart away from Jesus. What value do these distractions really have when I lose my place with Jesus?

What is a false idol that I need to put aside to give more attention to God today?
