Anything that we put an excessive amount of time into can become a god to us. The very first commandment tells us to never let anything come before God. In our verse today God lets us know right up front that He will not tolerate our affection for any other gods. It’s important for us to remember that things like our jobs, kids, spouses and hobbies can quickly turn into more of a priority then our relationship with God. Over this week we will be talking about ways and habits we can form in order to make sure God comes first in our lives.
Questions for further thought:
1. How many of the things that occupy our time have taken the place where God should be?
2. What’s somethings you have already put in place to make God a priority?
Challenge: Think of one thing you could change in your daily schedule to make God a priority every day.
