When my husband and I got married, our lives changed. We promised to love each other until we die. We are devoted to each other and will not allow anything to separate us.
When people become Christians, they develop a very important relationship with God. Just like marriage, our relationship with God is special. We promise to not worship another god, idol, person or possession. Our lives become focused on our one true God.
In our Bible Reading, God gave the Israelites some commands to obey. God told them that they should only worship and serve Him. That command is for Christians today, too. The world has many things that we can love and worship and serve. But we need to stay devoted to God. We should not allow people and possessions to keep us from serving God.
Keep your relationship with God special. Love and serve only Him.
