Show Notes

What does the gospel of Matthew teach us about the first guideline for abundant living? This guideline is based on a commandment that regulates a certain relationship between God and his people. Biblical morality is predicated upon the reality that there is only one God, and he must be worshiped to the exclusion of all others.


The supreme guiding power over our lives, that which controls our ideals is our focus of worship. Many things can take the place of the worship of the true God in our hearts and minds. The adoration of these things will eliminate any possibility of our establishing or maintaining a real relationship with God. We need to seek God first at all times and for all things.


Scriptures referenced include Matthew 4:8-10; Deuteronomy 6; Matthew 22:36-38; Deuteronomy 5:6-7; Isaiah 44:18; Philippians 4:19; Job 1–2; 1 Kings 18–19; Matthew 6:33; and Matthew 6:24.
