The First Commandment
 
"You shall have no other gods before me." Deuteronomy 5:7
 
The Ten Commandments (1)
Balancing on a Log!
 
 
Who should be more important to you? The person that made the touchdown, wrote the song, drew the picture, or the one who died to save you so you can live forever in heaven? No Contest! Have you felt weird clapping for and exhorting your favorite ball team? I did not think so. Next time you see people raising their hands, clapping and rejoicing for Jesus, why not join in? He who the Son sets free is free indeed! It's OK to shout for Jesus the way you shout for the winning team. Remember, You are on the winning team when Jesus is your Lord and Savior.
 
God says He has to be our only God. We already know that He is the only true God. But sometimes we worship people in the world, like a sports hero, a music star, an actor or even a cartoon character. God wants to have our undivided attention. God must always receive the best of your worship and praise. When you live with an attitude of gratitude to God, you will be blessed!

Blessed Are You!

 
"Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
Matthew 5:3
 
"Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth."
Matthew 5:8
 
Jesus is our very best friend. We must turn to Him first. He says that when we agree with Him about what is sin and repent, we will see the kingdom of heaven. God owns the earth and everything in it. He created everything and He says if we follow Jesus, He will share it with us!

Cami Cub thought she could take a short cut to get across the river. Balancing on a log is not the easiest thing for a bear cub to do! Liam leapfrog followed her. Just as he thought, she was in trouble. He will calm her fears and lead her back to the safety of the bridge. Cami will never leave the safe path again. She had been told the right way to go, but she did not listen.

Sometimes we forget to put God first. Just like Cami Cub, we do not listen. That is when we get into trouble. We need friends to help us get back on the right path.
