Exodus 20:5. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I, the Lord, your God, am a jealous God, responding to the transgression of fathers by dealing with children to the third and fourth generations of those who reject me, 

God is jealous.  He will not stand for anyone or anything to be held or favored over Him.  We say we don’t bow to anyone or anything other than God.  We must be honest and look at our priorities.  There are many things and sometimes people we put before our worship, obedience and/or love for God.  Just to list a few: sports, entertainment, food, ourselves.  We probably fluctuate in and out but we all do it.  What do we read the most?  Who do we talk to the most?  I think we all get the idea so what do we do about it?  We are week when it comes to temptations.  We must depend on God’s Holy Spirit.  As we learn to listen throughout each day we will hear more distinctly, “This us the way.”  Our question is do we want to love Him above all else?  God, help us hear, obey and grow in our love for You.
