You Shall Have No Other Gods Before Me

🌞 🦅 🔥 🐃 🦁
During a children’s church service, the teacher talked about the first of the Ten Commandments: “You shall have no other gods before Me”.

She suggested some ways for the kids to keep this command.

She said, “Nothing should come before God – not candy, not schoolwork, not video games.” She told them that putting God first meant that time with Him, reading the Bible and praying should come before anything else.

An older child in the group responded with a thought-provoking question. She asked if being a Christian was about keeping rules or if instead God wanted to be involved in all areas of our life.

Many a times we make the mistake of viewing the Bible as a list of rules. Certainly obeying God and spending time with Him are important, but not because we need to be rule-keepers.

Jesus and the Father had a loving relationship. When we have a relationship with God, we desire to spend time with Him and obey Him so we can become more like Jesus.

He’s the example to follow. When we want to understand how to love, or how to be humble ourselves, or how to have faith, or even how to set our priorities, we can look at Jesus and follow His heart.🙇‍♂️

Yes, Jesus calls us to follow Him. 👼By Anne Cetas
