Other gods

Today's reading: 1 Kings 11:9-43

The first few verses of our passage today spoke loudly to me. Despite God's blessing paired with repeated instructions and cautions, Solomon chose to go his own way and serve other gods. As a result, God is angry and there are far reaching consequences--for Solomon, his descendants and the entire nation of Israel.

What are the things that can become "other gods" to you if you're not being mindful of, and intentional about, your relationship with God? What's one thing that stood out to you from 1 Kings 11 about the consequences of turning away from God? Tami

Many of our daily activities can become "gods" to us as watching TV, playing sports, even making this blog a "god" by writing our comments daily. As 1 Kings 11 states, if we do not put Him first, what we have could be given to others.
