“You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything Exodus 20:3-4 New International Version
Who or what do you put above God?
Are you more concerned about keeping in physical shape than you are about spending time worshipping God and serving Him? Do you spend as much time with your Bible as you do at the gym?
How about your car? Do you take better care of your car than you do the needs of the needy? Do you spend more time with your career than you do serving God?
Are not these things images that are more important to you than God?
I live a very simple life.
Spending time every morning reading Gods love letter and instruction manual, the Bible, is the most important time of my day.
I know that when I do even the simplest good deed I do so as an act of honour to God. It makes the receivers of the act very happy, makes God happy and therefore makes me happy.
I see people who worship idols of movie stars, sports stars, music stars, keeping up with the Jones as very empty shells of women and men. They have no real meaning or purpose in their lives and feel pity got them. They only experience shallow happiness at best.
If only they would worship the true God they would experience great joy in their lives.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) for the most wonderful blessing. That of worshipping a marvelous God such as You. It brings the greatest fulfillment and joy to my life.I give thanks in the name above all names Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus' precious love bless you today and every day.
