The Ten Commandments


๐Ÿ“– EXODUS CHAPTER 20
TEN GOLDEN RULES FOR LIVING

The Ten Commandments recorded in Exodus 20 are not only the basis of conduct , both moral and spiritual but also the basis of peace and prosperity for the individual and the world. The way we live is more important than what we have. ๐Ÿ™Œ

Someone said , ” No man break God’s law , he breaks only himself “. ๐Ÿ“Œ The way in which God stated His laws is amazing. The first four deal with MAN’S RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD and the last six deals with MAN’S RELATIONSHIP WITH MAN. Before a man can live rightly with each other , he must first get right with God.

๐Ÿ“œ 1 ~ No other gods before Him
There are five objects of worship which often comes before God : Wealth , Fame , Pleasure , Power & Knowledge . Let us check it โœ…

๐Ÿ“œ 2 ~ No graven Image ๐Ÿ‘บ
We know that ” God created man in His own image “. Instead of being like God, we seek to create Him in our image.

๐Ÿ“œ 3 ~ Do not take His name in vain
In what way we are likely to profane God’s name .

By our language.
We admit there is God but our belief is merely a lip service.

๐Ÿ“œ 4 ~ Remember the Sabbath Day .
God used 93 words to tell us to remember the Sabbath Day and to keep it holy . In the first place God tells us to remember because He knew our tendency to forget things.

๐Ÿ“œ 5 ~ Honor your parents
Parents are the greatest social influence on the life of a child. It is in the home that a child first learns to respect the personalities of others and so on . Parents must be honorable.

๐Ÿ“œ 6 ~ No killing
The foundation of this commandment is that God values every man as He values you and me . So He made us to live with each other with love and respect.

๐Ÿ“œ 7 ~ No adultery
It is wrong because
~ God said IT IS WRONG.
~ It is violation of marriage vow.

๐Ÿ“œ 8 ~ No stealing
It is the foundation of our entire economic system , because it recognizes the fact that one has right , a God given right to work , earn , save and own . Thus, it is wrong to steal. Malachi said that we are robbing God in tithes and offerings.
Are we ?

๐Ÿ“œ 9 ~ False Witness
This involves our talking about other people – a part of gossip.
There cannot be a noise unless there is an ear to hear.

๐Ÿ“œ 10 ~ You shall not covet
To covet means having a desire over something with evil motives. Be content with what you have is our signpost.

๐ŸŽˆ The best summary of the Ten Commandments is the one Jesus gave , ” Love the Lord your God with all your heart โ€ฆ Love your neighbor as yourself..” Mark 12: 30-31

Glory to God๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
