This verse from Exodus says "You shall have no other gods before me." Do we really need this commandment? Yes, we certainly do. Whatever holds the highest place in a person's life is a god. I heard a story that said there is a museum in China where there is an exhibit called "The American God." What do you think it was? It is a dollar bill, nicely framed. I find it strange how mankind turns away from the living God, who is revealed in nature and the Bible, and invents imaginary gods to fit there unbelieving hearts. Some worship pleasure, some others worship reason, philosophy, or business. But all these things are as imperfect as humans themselves. Those who trust in these kind of things will be left without a light in the dark night, until the words of the first commandment meets them in the judgment...."Thou shalt have no other gods before me." We are to fear, love, and trust in God alone, above all other people and things.
