Those of you who have come to know me through my blogs know by now that i like to quote scripture as it relates to our everyday life. Well what can be more relevant than Gods ten commandments.Thetrouble as se it is how many of us take the time to read the full version of the commandments as they are written in EXODUS as compared to the shortened bumper sticker version that we see ahnging on walls and religious decorations etc. I spent 10 years of my youth in parochial schools, was baptized was an altar boy was confirmed etc. etc. but never realized that the ten commandments took up half of a page of text nor truly took the time to understand them fully .
So I am going to list one commandment a day for the next ten days and try to go into it a little bit. I will be using the King James Version of the Bible.
1 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other Gods before me.
That seems pretty straight foward I only believe in one God, but when we put our desire for worldly things like money or career or fame or desires of the flesh first in our lives are we not are we not putting other Gods before him.I suggest that when we allow ANYTHING in our life to become more important to us than God we are putting other Gods before him.
Just something to think about
God Bless you
