"Simon says ..."

Have you ever played "Simon says"? It's a game in which players are allowed to follow a command only if it begins with the words Simon says. The leader can say anything he wants, but if a player doesn't listen carefully and follows a command that doesn't start with Simon says, he gets taken out of the game. The last person left in the game is the winner.

We could think about using the rules of this game in another way. Instead of moving only when Simon says, how about moving only when God says?

God is in charge, the All and Only. The First Commandment tells us, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." Ex. 20:3. So when we feel like doing or saying something, we can ask ourselves first if God told us to do it or say it.
