Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Exodus 20:3 KJV
We like to think we keep the ten commands
That God gave Moses on Mount Sinai,
But we can’t even keep the one that stands
As first among them all, and some don’t try.
We push Jehovah back to make more room
For all the other gods we worship now,
Like money, food, the TV we consume,
And everything we claim to disavow.
Whatever stands between the Lord and you,
Whatever steals attention from His face,
Is just like cheating on a spouse that’s true,
And then to have the gall to seek His grace!
The way to keep the Lord your number one
Is follow in the footsteps of His Son.
