Free2BFit360 Inspiration | Exodus 20:2 and Deuteronomy 5:6

First commandment is mentioned twice in the bible: first in Exodus 20:1-17 and then at Deuteronomy 5:4-21: First-Commandment-WP We are Christians and I think it is natural to believe that we have that one nailed down. But is it truly so? How many of us spend actual time with the father every day? What is our first though when we wake up in the morning and what are our last thoughts when we go to sleep? And how about the health and wellness obsession? What about our jobs and hobbies? Meriam-Webster dictionary gives the following definition for “God”:


  • the perfect and all-powerful spirit or being that is worshiped especially by Christians, Jews, and Muslims as the one who created and rules the universe
  • a spirit or being that has great power, strength, knowledge, etc., and that can affect nature and the lives of people : one of various spirits or beings worshiped in some religions
  • a person and especially a man who is greatly loved or admired
  • the supreme or ultimate reality: as the Being perfect in power, wisdom, and goodness who is worshiped as creator and ruler of the universe
  • Christian Science: the incorporeal divine Principle ruling over all as eternal Spirit :  infinite Mind
  • a being or object believed to have more than natural attributes and powers and to require human worship; specifically :  one controlling a particular aspect or part of reality
  • a person or thing of supreme value
  • a powerful ruler

I think many of us go through the day paying attention to work, family, going to the gym, planning our meals and in all that time may be a Sunday workshop at church. So we do we really believe without a doubt in out God and if so how much time should we spend with him. I think all of it. Again, my personal opinion but I think if we do believe our Lord is a powerful God we will bring him into out daily routine, giving thanks and asking for guidance as we go along preparing our meals, takings kids to school, putting out another fire at work (which seems to never stop no matter how much work you put it, I guess that is why there is more work and means another paycheck, so might be a goof thing). So may be just may be next time we raise up to meet the day we rise up and bring God with us. Letting him be part of everything and not just the next big disaster. Prayer: My Heavenly Father, gently help me to stay focused on you as I raise my eyes upon your glory. Svetlana “Free2BFit”
