"You shall have no other gods before Me." - Exodus 20 V3

"...One thing you lack; Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me." - Mark 10 V21

When we give any worldly thing the first priority in our lives we actually violate the first commandment and we worship something else other than the true God. The Lord Jesus asked the rich man to sell everything he had and follow Him, and it was difficult for the rich man to do so. As true followers of Christ, we should be willing to give Christ the first place in our lives. We should take up our cross daily and follow our Lord. A follower of Christ cannot serve both God and money. Give God the first place in your life and let Him lead you always.

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
