"Hear, Oh Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone!"
Through Moses, God gave the people a choice whether or not they wanted to continue to live in relationship with him. They enthusiastically said yes. The one condition that God gave them was that God must be first in their lives. Nothing or no one can be given greater priority. God has given us that same condition. We are tempted everyday to let other people and things take God's place in our life. At those times we can remember Moses' instruction to the Hebrew people and join in an enthusiastic yes! to God.
What is it that most distracts you from putting God first in your life?
