God First

Exodus 20:2-3

2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Seems pretty simple. Don’t have put any gods before God. That shouldn’t be hard to do, but what if you have something that is more important than God in your life? Like a vehicle, house, or maybe your spouse. All of those things in a way can become a god that we place before God. We will focus more in those things than spending time with God. I’m not saying focus on your marriage, don’t keep your house up, or don’t clean your vehicle. Those are only examples. We will focus more on our marriage than the fact that God is the glue that keeps it together. We will focus so much on our house, the way it look or building an addition on that we slip on studying and praying. Vehicles, well we become so prideful in them that we want everyone to look at us in them and we begin to let pride push God from our minds. These are only a few examples. If anything become so important that it come before God than it has become a god in your life and God may just remove it. God wants us to give him all of ourselves and for him to be at the tip our lists. So if you feel like something has become more important than God or is starting to, fix it. Put God before that and ask him to help you to keep him first. God should always be first in our lives.
