Our fathers made a calf in Horeb
and adored a molten image;
They exchanged their glory
for the image of a grass-eating bullock. - Psalm 106:19-20
Admittedly, most of us don't go out and worship a molten image. But, what are the things that we do put before God? What distracts us from prayer? What keeps us from focusing on what is important in life? Is it TV, the computer, music, an addiction, the busyness of housework? We need to keep our priorities straight. We need to always remember to put God first. If we do that, everything else will maintain its proper importance in our lives.
