God reveals himself to be a jealous god! This means that he is protective of the love and loyalty owed him by his covenant people and that he is protective of those same people. He is not envious but protective. In this context, Deuteronomy 4:15-40 warns God's people to stay away from idols! He is our help and hope while idols are nothing. This calls for us to examine ourselves asking, "Have I begun to follow an idol?"
