Verse: Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.
Insight: Ken Sande writes, "Anytime we long for something apart from God, fear something more than God, or trust in something other than God to make us happy, fulfilled, or secure, we worship a false god." God is the answer to our every question. We should seek to worship Him in all that we do while being cautious of anything that would keep us from that purpose.
Prayer: God, you are the one true god. Let us seek only your council and put nothing before you. Thank you for the wisdom and guidance that you have provided in your Word. To you alone be the glory, Amen.
