Whom Do I Worship?

Topic: Following Jesus
Revelation 19:10 MKJV And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said to me, See, do not do it! I am your fellow servant, and of your brothers who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God, for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
Someone catches the eye of the public and become the latest rage. Everyone wants to interview them, put them on a pedestal, be like them. The phenomenon becomes nothing less than worship.
We worship heroes, sports stars, actors and other celebrities. We even worship, often following without question, government leaders and dynamic speakers--even pastors, spouses, kids.
The trouble with this is that God in Jesus must be our sole focus of worship. Anything else is idolatry and leads away from Him and into trouble.
Do I worship someone other than God and God alone? How do I spend my heart, my efforts, my income?
Psalm 30:11-12 MKJV You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have torn off my sackcloth, and have clothed me with gladness, so that my glory may sing praise to You, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
