The Lord loves us and has given us His terms for us to follow to show that we love Him and to enjoy His blessings!
I. The second term of the covenant is 'You shall not make for yourself an idol' = 'Don't Idolize anything, but worship God only', for our God is a jealous God.
II. Worship God only - give Him our highest love and devotion for only He is worthy.
Three motives behind idols:
- It is an attempt to limit God's location
- It is an attempt to reduce His power and size

1. It will delight me - fulfillment
2. It will deliver me - freedom
3. It will develop me - potential
