God gave Moses the 10 commandments after he led the Israelites out of Egypt. The first four commandments teach us how to act towards God. They were specific about having no other gods and we should not make an idol to worship. These instructions teach us that God needs to be in first place in our lives. Nothing else should come before him. No possessions, no other relationship, no activity, no hobby, and no king. God desires our loyalty and devotion.
