Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

Put God in His Place

on October 23, 2022

Deuteronomy 5:7- “You shall have no other gods before me.”

If you’re a shopaholic, it may be shoes, purses, or blouses that distract you.

If you’re a golfer, it may be playing a round several times per week.

It could be doing the daily crossword puzzle or meeting friends for morning coffee.

If not God, then there is something or someone you are putting first in your life. And that gets priority for your attention, finances, and/or affection.

In the Bible, God refers to them as gods (note the small ‘g’) and warns us against them.

God tells us in His Word that He deserves—and wants—that first-place spot. He says if we put Him first, all of these other things will fall into place in their proper order. 

As a child, my Sunday school teacher talked about putting God on the Throne of our hearts.

As King of Kings, this is His rightful place.
