Thou Shalt Have No Other Gods Before Me!
Num 33:4 For the Egyptians buried all their firstborn, which the LORD had smitten among them: upon their gods also the LORD executed judgments.
It is well known that each of the miraculous plagues sent upon the Egyptians were a direct attack against their gods.
That makes me think of the gods we "sophisticated" people tend to prostrate ourselves before; cash, cars, careers, etc.
I firmly believe that our great and jealous God will only put up with our idolatrous ways for so long before He begins to strike out against them.
Perhaps today, each of us could examine our lives to see if we are committing idolatry and get it out of the way of a wonderful relationship with Him.
Remember, the Devil only pays us in counterfeit bills.
