“And God spoke all these words: ‘I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me.’ ” Exodus 20:1-3
Flora and Brandt like to run and play.
They jump and flip in the sun all day.
They sing and dance to the music they make.
And tell each other stories as they camp by the lake.
When it’s time for them to say good night.
They make plans to play together in the morning light.
On Monday they hunt for bugs and collect leaves.
On Tuesday they play kickball among the trees.
On Wednesday they praise God with friends.
On Thursday they release their kites in the winds.
On Friday they build a fortress and a mote.
On Saturday they launch rockets and boats.
But on Sundays the friends take a break from their play
To worship the Lord each in their family’s special way.
When the children of Israel left Egypt and were waiting in the wilderness to move into the Promised Land, God told them to work and take care of business for six days, but to set aside the seventh day to rest and honor Him. In Exodus 20:8-11, we learn the Lord’s plan for how we are to live our lives.
How do you honor God?
