We are to have no other gods before God Almighty and we are to love Him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.  Let us consider this love.  The Bible says that God loved us before we even knew who He was. He did not love us because we were so good, so cute, so smart, so strong, or so handsome, etc.  He loved us because He is love.  Now we have a choice: We can choose to love God or we can choose not to love God.  This choice is ours.  Our love for God should cause everything that we say, think, or do to be a reflection of the love of God in our lives.
