“To love any thing more than God, is to make it a god.”

– Thomas Watson, The Ten Commandments (Banner of Truth, 2009, first pub. 1692), 55.

“Pride makes a god of self, covetousness makes a god of money, sensuality makes a god of the belly; whatever is esteemed or loved, feared or served, delighted in or depended on, more than God, that (whatever it is) we do in effect make a god of.”

– Matthew Henry, Commentary on the Whole Bible, vol. 1 (Macdonald, orig. published 1706), 358-359.
