Who or what is your golden calf???

Gee besides this event where a golden image of trump reminding me of this:

It also reminds me of this:

Daniel 3:5

ESV

5 that when you hear the asound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, harp, bagpipe, and every kind of music, you bare to fall down and worship the golden image that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up.

I am also reminded of the biblical warnings to keep us from falling into this temptation:

1 Corinthians 3:4-7

New International Version

4 For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,”(A) are you not mere human beings?

5 What, after all, is Apollos?(B) And what is Paul? Only servants,(C) through whom you came to believe—as the Lord has assigned to each his task. 6 I planted the seed,(D) Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. 7 So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.

Acts 14:11-15

New International Version

11 When the crowd saw what Paul had done, they shouted in the Lycaonian language, “The gods have come down to us in human form!”(A) 12 Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul they called Hermes because he was the chief speaker.(B) 13 The priest of Zeus, whose temple was just outside the city, brought bulls and wreaths to the city gates because he and the crowd wanted to offer sacrifices to them.

14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of this, they tore their clothes(C) and rushed out into the crowd, shouting: 15 “Friends, why are you doing this? We too are only human,(D) like you. We are bringing you good news,(E) telling you to turn from these worthless things(F) to the living God,(G) who made the heavens and the earth(H) and the sea and everything in them.(I)
