Obeying our governing laws is important. Negative consequences await those who choose to ignore laws. But greater consequences await–those with eternal impact–affect those who place anything above God. God is our Creator. He made us and He made wonderful plans for our lives. When we shove Him to the side in lieu of things of the world’s making, we lose the blessings He wants to bestow on us. We lose our close fellowship with the One who made us in His image. May there be no god in my life taking precedence over the One True God in my heart!
