“You must not bow down to them [other gods or idols] or worship them, because I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the fathers’ sin to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing faithful love to a thousand generations of those who love Me and keep My commands.”

‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭5:9-10‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

This commandment is the first of the ten commandments and is second only to the fourth commandment when it comes to length. It’s the only commandment that comes with a strong warning about the repercussions of disobedience. Choosing to put other things before God will result in punishment not only to yourself but also to the next few generations of your family. On the other hand, God rewards faithfulness for many generations to come. Aren’t you thankful God’s “memory” of our sin is much shorter than His recall of our obedience?
