Exodus 20:1-2, 4-6 And God spoke all these words, saying, "...You shall not make for yourself a carved image

Exodus 20:1-2, 4-6
And God spoke all these words, saying, "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. ...You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.

Now why would I bow down to something I had made with my own hands? Surely I would not be that foolish! Or would I? Would I put my career before God; would I trust in the sufficiency of my retirement income before trusting in the provision of God? Would I look to my coworkers and superiors for guidance about the proper standards of my work rather than doing everything as unto the Lord? Nah, not me! Or do I? Lord, reveal those shortcomings in my life where I do not seek You and Your righteousness first but seek the approbation of idols.

Keep Me before you!

With all your heart!
With all your soul!
With all your mind!
With all your strength!
Focus on My Glory!
