The Greatest Principle of Life
What is the greatest principle of living an outstanding life? The Ten Commandments say, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20; Deuteronomy 5). Exalting the self, money, or anything above God is a delusion, because no one and nothing is greater than God. Ancient nations worshipped false gods. It destroyed them (Jeremiah 3:6-9, 5:7, Ezekiel 16:38, 23:37, Hosea 1:2). Such foolish self-deception is living a lie. The greatest commandment of all is, “love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.” (Deuteronomy 6:5, Matthew 22:37-38, Mark 12:29-30, Luke 10:27-28). The greatest principle of life is loving God first.
