    There are two things that jump out of today’s text for me. The first is the point that JD drives home, our God is the one God, we are commanded to have no other God’s before Him. That is the first commandment. He is in total control. Even our free will is in His control. Nothing, nothing happens that He does not either allows, empowers or does Himself. Our faith, a saving faith, is built on this and nothing less. The governor, and I will be political because it is important to know and to name the belief system that is behind his proclamation, is a progressive democratic socialist and a secular humanists, which is antithetical to monotheism or our belief in one all powerful, all knowing, always present God. He is a polytheist despite his profession to be a Catholic. Anytime, we take control, take credit for or put anything or anyone before God, we are guilty of the same sin. I am not judging him. I am just calling him out and judging his statement. The second message or warning is that our God punished the Egyptians because of there treatment of Israel, the people of God, but that is a discussion for another day. As for me and my household, we will serve the one God!
