Thought For Today {Happy Birthday Sam}


Exodus 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Exodus 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Exodus 20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

Exodus 20:13 Thou shalt not kill.

Exodus 20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Exodus 20:15 Thou shalt not steal.

Exodus 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

Exodus 20:17 Thou shalt not covet the neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

Count them, there are ten of them! These are the basic Ten Commandments. There are other commandments in the bible, but these are the Ten that God gave to Moses for his people to live by!

Read Exodus Chapter 20, it only has 26 verses in it, but it says so much. After looking at the above scriptures consider how hard it would be to live according to those scriptures. If you are like most people you would not have much trouble living by God's set of rules. The rules are simple:

1. God is God, no one or nothing else is a god.

2. Worship no graven image of any kind, no budda's, no cows, no pictures, worship the God of the bible not an image of him.

3. No cursing.

4. The sabbath day is a day of rest, a day for God, don't he deserve it after all he made the days!

5. Honour your parents, not only because they deserve it, but because God said to, if not for them you would not be here.

6. Don't kill.

7. Don't cheat on your spouse, love your husband or wife as you love God.

8. Don't steal, if it's not your's you shouldn't have it without permission of the owner.

9. Tell no lies about anyone.

10. Do not take any thing that you have not earned, neither by theft or in a court of ungodly law.

Tim V.
