Love the greatest commandment: Part 2

  1. 1. Love, the Greatest Commandment, Part 2 Worship God, Not Things The second of the Ten Commandments says: “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them” (Exodus 20:4–5 ESV). When we love God with all of our heart, soul, and mind, and our neighbor as ourselves …1 We can enjoy special items that are fun or useful, but we don’t allow such things to become our main focus to where God takes second place in our lives. 1 Matthew 22:37–39 ESV I must have that bike to be happy! I must have that latest game to be happy! Fun Game More Fun
  2. 2. We give God first place in our lives. “Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth” (Colossians 3:2 ESV). I’m the one who loves and cares for you.

But You’re the one that makes me fulfilled! Jesus, I’d like to have that bike. But whether I have that bike or not, I know that You’ll keep me happy! Asher’s parents are giving him a game and bike for Christmas. Let’s also give Silas a bike, so they can ride together!
