The Second Commandment
You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
The Israelites journeyed through lands of many idols. This was akin to walking through a dangerous minefield. God instituted the Second Commandment as a pathway to safety.
Our idols are less obvious today. They come in the form of things that sneak into our lives to grab our time and affection.
God wants first place in our lives. Even children have temptations that pull them away from God. This lesson will help children practically identify the things that compete with God as the primary loves in our lives. He is the only one who deserves first place in our hearts and lives.
Look for the lesson to be delivered by email on Friday afternoon.
