Understanding the First Commandment

"You shall have no other gods before Me," says the LORD. But what does it mean to have another god besides the LORD?

Martin Luther puts it this way:

A god is whatever we expect to provide all good and in which we take refuge in all distress...Whatever you set your heart on and put your trust in, that, I tell you, is your true God.
