By nature we are idolators. We worship things other than God. Mostly we worship ourselves. More often than not we have made ourselves gods because we worship our inner nature.
We do not seek the things of God but instead we seek the things that are self fulfilling. We follow our own will and our will is made up of those things that make us feel good, although short lived, not knowing that eternal happiness—true happiness—comes only from God. This is happiness that lasts forever.
It is when we realize this fact that we turn from worshiping the wrong things to worshiping the one true God. It is at that point that we leave behind our idolatrous behavior.
