I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God. v5 I have a jealous husband. In the good sense. In the sense that God is jealous. He wants and deserves my prioritized devotion to Him. My time with him must come first, and time with others and other pursuits can find it's place after that. I need to remember that God desires the same from me. It's easy to forget when God is so patient about it. My husband a little less so =)

"God has come to test you. He wants you to respect Him so you will not sin." v20 A proper respect for and understanding of God's character will result in proper life choices.

I've been teaching the ten commandments in kids club this winter. The overarching message has been how incapable we are of achieving God's standard and how it all points to Jesus. Thank God he is our righteousness and paid the price for our redemption. May I live accordingly and pass on the passion to these little ones to do the same.
