If we ever have ANY problem with any of these it is because we do not yet have enough love, a giving and not looking to receive back, kind of love..
1. I am the LORD your God. You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve.
If you truly LOVE God, how can you do any less??
2. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
When you respect and love someone you respect and love their name and what they represent.
3. Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day.
This is kind of like a "date" with God, a special time to show in a special way that love is in your heart.
4. Honor your father and your mother.
What better way to magnify your love for the Creator than to love what He created? And, when loving is difficult as in the cases of physical, mental or spiritual abuse, then always remember that we love the sinner and HATE the sin.
5. You shall not kill.
Not only that, but you love and care and cherish life around you.
6. You shall not commit adultery.
Respecting and loving the Creator and the created.
7. You shall not steal.
Even beyond this, you help those in need either financially or with kindness.
8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
Let us concentrate on each other's goodness and encourage that growth through love.
9. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife.
Be happy and love what is yours and your blessings.
10. You shall not covet your neighbor's goods.
With love you can rejoice in what they have and be happy with your own blessings, even the tiniest ones.
And then here are the rules/laws/Commandments that not only make us happy but keep us happy...
Each one needs LOTS of love not just mere "obedience"...
Each one, when kept with love, gives us peace and harmony....
Please notice the love added at the bottom of this display of the Ten Commandments....
Nestled in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains, across from a mountain where God revealed a vision, lie the world's largest set of the Ten Commandments. Other record breaking biblical monuments can be found here also along with replicas of Golgotha and Joseph's Tomb.
