This is today's reading from Paramahansa Yogananda's Spiritual Directory...
"When the Lord commanded:
'Thou shalt not have other gods before me.
Thou shalt not make unto thee
any graven image' (Ex. 20: 3 - 4),
He meant that we should not exalt
the objects of creation above the Creator.
Our love for Nature,
family, friends, duties,
should not occupy
the supreme throne
in our hearts.
That is where God belongs."
