Keep Yourselves From Idols

Jesus said that the greatest command in the Hebrew Bible is Deuteronomy 6:4-5. This begins with the declaration that “The Lord our God is one Lord.” Since there is only one God, it follows that nothing else should be served as a god. Yet, this is what people have always done. In ancient times, people worshipped things in nature. We’re more sophisticated today, but modern people also make idols. Living for God starts with deciding to love him over everything else.
