Furthermore, the LORD was angry with me because of you, and he swore that I should not cross the Jordan, and that I should not enter the good land that the LORD your God is giving you for an inheritance. For I must die in this land; I must not go over the Jordan. But you shall go over and take possession of that good land. Take care, lest you forget the covenant of the LORD your God, which he made with you, and make a carved image, the form of anything that the LORD your God has forbidden you. For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.

Sometimes we forget that God not only wants, but also deserves the best of our attention and affections. The warning from the text was that the Israelites not forget to put God first in all things. How can we do that in our lives? I like to make it a habit that the first thing I do in the morning is my daily devotions and prayer. I also make it a point to end my day in prayer. Why do I do that? To start and end my day with the most important person in my life, keeps my focus right where it belongs.
