The First Commandment!

"I am the Lord your God: you shall not have strange gods before me." This commandment is first for a reason. Today we have many strange gods that we put first in our lives, such as TV, sports, food, entertainment, comfort, and the list goes on. We all must ask ourselves each day, "What comes first in my life?" If God, the one true God, comes first then everything else will work for good. All the other commandments, all the choices we make, all the events that impact our lives will work for the good. We know that God comes first when we take time to pray, time in the morning, time in the evening and time throughout the day. The only way to be in relationship with another is to communicate and what better form of communication is there than prayer. God is love and he created us in love. Spend time with him today.
