Timothy Keller on Idolatry

When we reject God, our hearts must constantly manufacture idols, persons, relationships, objects and conditions which we believe will give us fulfillment. We believe that these things will bring us meaning, security and worth. But no idol can fill the void in our hearts. All idolatry leads to deep hunger pangs in the soul, because nothing but a relationship with God can fulfill us.
