"You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below." ~ God (Exodus 20:4)
God is serious about being in first place. This isn't an option, but a requirement of being Christian.
When we turn our back to God and chase cheap idols, we invite hell and chaos into our life.
Can those cheap idols forgive us? Give us eternal hope? Nope. They destroy us --- they are weak and can't save us.
Take an inventory of anything you've created which kicks God down the ladder. Name them - then crush them.
