Peace and Love are yours if you choose to Love the Lord your God and obey His commandments.
Studying Exodus 20:4-17 one gains a deep appreciation for two things. The first four commandments direct God’s expectational relationship with Him as an obedience person. The last four commandments are the value system His people shall have between themselves. Adherence to God’s instruction sets us apart from the World Value System.
Ex. 4:3 – “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”
Ex. 4:4 – “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.”
You will not put anything (Mother, Father, Wife, Child, Preacher, Celebrity, Politicians, Work-Place, Plant, Tree, Animal, Food, Clothes, Money, Car, and “Gun” of any type, ect..) before God.
You shall not bow down to these or any other items created by God or humankind. For God is a jealous God and will bring down iniquity upon your children unto the third and fourth generation. But, showing love to a thousand generations of those who love Him and keep His commandments.
Simply, just honor what God Almighty has asked, receiving blessing to your household.
