‘You shall have no other gods before me.’

Exodus 20:3

Poor backsliding Israelites! They replaced the great God of their salvation with a pathetic golden calf and so broke the first and greatest commandment. That moment has haunted the Jewish people throughout the ages and every year they meet in synagogues on the day of Yom Kippur to repent and confess their sins before God.
Jesus tells us to ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ (Matt.22:37) Dare we disobey?
