"Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him."
Deuteronomy 13:4 (emphasis added)
If, at any time, something else replaces "Him," I am on my path to dishonor and displease God. Am I walking after God, or am I walking after others?
Am I fearing Him or others?
Am I keeping His commandments, or others?
Am I obeying His voice, or my own wishes?
Am I serving Him or myself?
Am I cleaving to Him or the world?
