What is your idol?

Samuel Rutherford: 

O wretched idol myself! When shall I see thee wholly decourted, and Christ wholly put in thy room? O, if Christ, Christ, had a full place and room of myself, that all my aims, purposes, thoughts, and desires, would coast and land upon Christ, and not upon myself! And yet, how beit we cannot attain to this denial of me and mine that we can say I am not of myself, myself is not myself,  my own is no longer mine own; yet our aiming at this in all we do shall be accepted; for alas, I think I shall die but minting and aiming to be a Christian.
