TOPIC: LIVING BY THE WORD
Memory verse:- And God spoke all these words:
"I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
"You shall have no other gods before me. "You shall not make for yourself an idol in
the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a
jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth

daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within

If we are to live in pleasing our maker then we are to observe and to do what He asks us to do. Remember, in this life we do not live to please or impressive ourselves or any fellow man but to please or impress God.
Prayer:-pray for obedience in observing God’s instructions.
pray for humility in your relationship with God and fellow human beings.
