The Second Commandment

"You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything
in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
You shall not bow down to them or worship them;
for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God..."
Deuteronomy 5:8-9
The Ten Commandments (2)

Only One Conductor

Does "Mr. Want" live at your house? "Mr. Want" is not a very good house guest. God prefers that you invite "Mr. Need" into your home. A desire to possess things can cause you trouble. Ask God to show you if you are putting the things in the world before Him. God wants to be your One and Only Conductor. He wants you to let Him be your guide, leader, master and provider.

There are many ways we might make things more important to us than God. Our 'wanter' or our "will" gets in our way. When we want to have things more than we want to serve God we cannot please God. He is a jealous God. He won't take second place in our hearts. He has told us that if we seek Him first, He will take care of 'Mr. Need'. He wants our will to line up with His will for us.

Blessed are You!

"Blessed are those whose hearts are pure in heart,
for they will see God."
Matthew 5:8
A pure heart is a heart that is turned to God. If we are not looking at Jesus, we cannot see God. Being pure in our heart means that we see like with the eyes of God. We hear what He is telling us without trying to please our will. A pure heart loves what God loves! God loves all people and wants them to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Jesus says we will be blessed if we care about God's will more than our own. When we love God and others with a pure heart, God will show Himself to us in many ways!

The Critters are practicing before the Kid Cave Forest Spring Festival. Liam Leapfrog is the Conductor. He is the leader of the band! He is the one who shows the band the right way to play the music. The Critters will watch their conductor. The Critters are learning how to watch closely and follow their leader. The music they play at the Festival will sound sweet to all the creatures in the forest.

We need to know the Leader of our band, watch Him working in our lives and follow His directions. Jesus is our only Conductor! His Holy Spirit shows us how to live sweetly and acceptable before God!
