Don't make something your GOD that isn't GOD...it will go bad. That's why HE says don't put anything else above Him, don't make something else your GOD and put it before Him. If you make your spouse your god it will go bad, if you make your kids your god it will go bad, if you make money your god it will go bad, if you make yourself your god, it will crumble! In other words, dont worship ANYTHING as if its God but GOD!
On a different note, a thought crossed my mind the other day...people that dont even believe there is a God sure jump to blame Him when something goes bad in their lives. How does that work??
