Hello, God has given me something in Judges 8:27 which says, “Gideon made the gold into an Ephod, which he placed in Ophrah, his town. All Israel prostituted themselves by worshipping it there and it became a snare to Gideon and his family.
So what God has given me, is that people need to worship something, now the question is, what do we worship? If we worship God then that is great, good job, but if we worship anything else, then we are sinning. The gold was probably shiny and pretty, right? And then would be a temptation, right? Its kind of like Adam and Eve in the garden, satan fooled Eve into thinking that the apple was delicious (which no doubt it was) and that God just said they would die because if they ate it, they would see, if you get my meening. So the apple looked very good and pleasing, so she ate it, and gave some to Adam. It’s just like sin, the devil makes it look appealing and good, when really it’s nasty and rotten. That is why God sent His one and only son (Jesus) to die on the cross for us, so that we didn’t (and do not) have to.
