Modern day idols: The things we love that can easily become idols in our lives

In this episode we discuss some of the things that we love, that God has given us to enjoy and how they can easily become idols in our lives. God is very clear in the bible, he is a very jealous God and commands us to not have any idols. But sometimes we restrict this to mean physical idols like those mentioned in the bible. However an idol is anything that we prioritise before God. So we often find ourselves making more time for things like soccer, watching series, music, our phones, social media etc than we've ever made for prayer and God. Have thes things become idols in our lives? How do we practically reprioritise the things in our lives such that we give more priority to what's really more important?
