The First Commandment (continued)

   There is great error in the world today.  Many believe that the ownership of the world belongs to mankind, when in all actuality it belongs to God.  The world is in such a confused state as they make gods of the land, of the sea, and of the air.  In our world today many worship false gods which is a direct violation of the First Commandment, and because of this the world is eclipsed by confusion.  One cannot serve two masters.  In today's world, many put more emphasis on money than upon our Almighty God.  When one begins to worship money, the light of faith becomes extinguished, leaving them in a state of emptiness.  Money has crippled many of us, for we have allowed it to possess us and to lead us in our decisions many times.  The monetary possessions in our life should hold no possession over us, nor should we ever become enslaved by them, for it is God Who we must serve, and we should put nothing before Him.  It is important that we give great glory to God.  We must worship Him and love Him for all that He has done for us, for He who is Almighty has blessed us with wisdom to know the reality of His Divine Presence in the world; for He is the One True God Who had made Heaven and earth.

   If one has spiritual sight they would be able to remove those things that have kept them blind and see the emptiness of this world. If only the world could recognize the Glory of the Father and the Wealth of His Righteousness, a Divine Peace would come into the world, blessing all people in His Holy Light, but in sadness, the world is too busy to take notice of the blessings that God has bestowed on them; for we must come to understand that the answers that lead to the Kingdom of Heaven are in the Ten Commandments of God.  Many in the world today rarely contemplate the Commandments enough, and because of this they become stagnant in their love for God.  Many souls contemplate and feel that the Commandments are simple, but in all reality they are complex, for the Commandments teach us that God must become the most important part of our life.  His light must radiate in everything that we do, everything that we have, and in everything we are.  We must never let a day pass without contemplating on our Glorious God and the many blessings that He has bestowed on us.  We cannot love anyone or anything above God, for God commands us in this Commandment to bless Him with our love.  It is most important that we glorify God through our love and obedience, but there is something that we must remember:  God has given us free will and it is up to us to decide for the Will of God to be done in us.  One might ask, "How can I decide for God's Will to be done in me?"  And the answer would be:  it is our duty to make available to God, self, mind, and spirit, which includes all of our possessions, both spiritually and physically. 

   God has been very patient and generous with us.  He has given us the time we have in order that we could convert back to His Love.  He has given us the food that we eat, the water we drink, and the home that we live in.  God has been very gracious with us by placing people in our lives that can help us in our journey to the Kingdom of Heaven, and God has blessed us with life itself, that many have taken for granted.
