And God spoke all these words: “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. “You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
Our God does not abandon us in out desperate sinful state. Our God comes to us gives us and instructions as to how we can live according to his will and in ways that will please him. We must begin and end by putting God first in our lives. If we do this God's promise is to show his love to a thousand generations. God's heart is driven by love!
O Lord my God, you are first. Thank you for Jesus. Amen.
