Divine Love III

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,
and possessions

should not occupy
the supreme throne

in our hearts.
That is where God belongs."
- Sayings of Paramahansa Yogananda
