Is Hashem in Everything?

If hashem is everything so that means that he’s the sun also, so then you can say that if the sun is worshipping me to keep me warm
then I am an idol for hashem? How can that be?

Answer:

Of course Hashem is not everything. Hashem is not the keyboard I’m typing on. It’s a keyboard, not Hashem!

There is a deep concept whereby the existence of everything in the world is contingent on the existence of Hashem. Without Hashem’s existence, nothing would exist, for it is He that gives everything existence, and He who provides the lifeline for all things.

Of course, the fact that Hashem provides us with our needs does not mean that He, or His envoys — the sun or any other created entity — “worships” us. A father who gives his son his needs does not worship his son.

Best wishes.
