1) The Hebrew people had been slaves in Egypt for many years. About 3,300 years ago, God called Moses to lead them to freedom. They started out on a 40-year journey to their "Promised Land" of Israel. Three months after leaving Egypt, they were camped at the foot of Mount Sinai. God called Moses up to the top of the mountain and gave him the Ten Commandments. Even though these Commandments are more than 3000 years old, they still help us live the way God wants us to live.
The First Commandment says, "I am the Lord your God. You must not worship any gods besides me." Which of these things does the First Commandment say we should do?
Make rich and famous people our idols.
Put our trust in God more than anything or anybody else.
Make whatever we want the most important thing in our lives.
