Exodus 20:4-5 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: (5) Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
It has always amazed me how someone could create something with their own hands and then attribute godlike qualities to it. We know that in the old testament there were many that carved statues and images and actually elevated them to the godlike positions.
I suppose though it is not so hard to believe when we see people today who worship the creations but fail to acknowledge the creator. We were created by God. In His image. Nothing else is worthy of our praise and worship.
Be very careful about humbling yourself to anyone or anything. The True and Living God is the only One worthy of our worship.
