The Ten Commandments may bring to mind the movie by the same name. Or, you might recall a controversy over whether the Ten Commandments should be displayed on government property. Just how important are the Ten Commandments? Should we follow them today?
On the journey through the desert God brought Moses and the Israelites to the foot of Mt. Sinai where God gave them the Ten Commandments. God wanted them to know that God cares about not only our physical wellbeing, but our spiritual nurture as well. The Ten Commandments teach us how to relate to God and how to love one another. The instructions are very brief. God can convey a lot in a few words! And those words have lasted for centuries.
To prepare for Sunday’s service read Exodus 20:1-11, which cover the first four commandments. Ask yourself:
- How might it impact our culture if people followed these commandments?
- How might it impact my life if I followed them?
