Leviticus 10:1-20; Psalms 111:1-112:10; Mark 2:1-22

Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Exodus 20:3

This first commandment summed up all the other commandments, laws and directives God gave His people. God first. If God is first, we won’t make “gods” out of people, wealth, success, fulfillment, pleasure, dreams, or desires. If God is first, we won’t use our time, energy and abilities for constant self-indulgences. If God is first, we won’t sin against our neighbour, or whine about what we do not have. If God is first, we will reflect a satisfaction, contentment and faith others will desire. Is this our reality? Is He first in our hearts today? —Deborah Manera

The failure of many is to seek from man what can be found only in God. —Watchman Nee
