TOPIC: HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE GOD
If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying, "let us go and worship other gods” (gods that neither you nor your ancestors have known, gods of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other), do not yield to them or listen to them. Show them no pity. Do not spare them or shield them. You must certainly put them to death. Your hand must be the first in putting them to death, and then the hands of all the people. Stone them to death, because they tried to turn you away from the lord your god, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. Then all Israel will hear and be afraid, and no one among you will do such an evil thing again.
You will never know how much you love god until you encounter a situation that has to do with god and an immediate relative like your mother. True! For example when your mother ask you to marry a lady of his choice for a logical reason and when god ask you to marry different one, that where your true love for god will be seen. This may be one of the least situations but in all know that god is supreme and your love for him must be first.
