5/27/13 Daily Devotion

Exodus 20:3 “You shall have no other gods before me.

Why would God place such a restriction upon His people? What’s the big deal if we share our dedication to Him with another entity? Well, if you have to ask these questions, then you obviously don’t understand the importance of a relationship with God. This commandment is not just so God will be glorified; it is also for the sake and direction of His children. If we place even the most minut amount of effort into pleasing another entity, whether that be a human, our job, our boss, or that pesky person at church, we are taking away from our relationship with God. That will lead us down the path of destruction. We are to worship, honor, and live for the glory of the One true God, forsaking all others and focusing on Him. For that, we will be blessed beyond our human understanding.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me set aside my desire to place anything in my life above You.
