Meditation: (Exodus 20:1-5) God spoke and these were His words: “I am the Lord who brought you out of Egypt where you were slaves. Worship no god but me. Do not make for yourselves images of anything in heaven or on earth or in the water under the earth. Do not bow down to any idol or worship it, because I am the Lord your God and I tolerate no rivals.”

Personal Reflection and Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, You command us to worship only You. Yet we admit that we often worship our own idols of fear, worry, or greed and pride, and so many others. May You forgive us and heal us, Lord. Please grant us Your pardon, healing and Your peace. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.
