Your name, O Lord, endures forever, your renown, O Lord, throughout all ages. For the Lord will vindicate his people and have compassion on his servants.
Psalm 135:13-14 ESV

God’s people are commanded to be as faithful to Him as He is to them.

The first commandment is a warning, declaring two important aspects of God’s character. 1) Before Him we are to have no other gods – He alone deserves the place of highest loyalty in our lives. 2) He deserves this place because nothing else can take His place – He is Most High.

The idols of the nations are silver and gold, made by human hands. They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but cannot see. They have ears, but cannot hear, nor is there breath in their mouths. Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them.
Psalm 135:15-18 NIV

God loves you too much to let you live for a lie. Heed His warning today, have no other god or interest or aspiration except the one you were created for: Glorify God with your life and enjoy Him forever!
