The Ten Commandments
As soon as I woke up this morning, I remembered only one specific thing from my dream. (Sometimes I remember my dreams and other times I think, “did I dream at all?”) What I do remember from last nights dream has played over and over again in my mind all day. It was a man chiseling into a big piece of stone. Chiseling away, hitting a pick looking object with a rock, determined to finish the task. Of course, my first thought this morning (after the morning wake up fog, haha) was…
Moses & The Ten Commandments
With that being said, I was going to just write out a list of The Ten Commandments, but decided to write out exactly what God spoke to Moses. This passage can be found in Exodus 20:1-17 KJV
“And God spoke all these words, saying,
I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
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.
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
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.
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
but the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
Thou shalt not kill.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.”
These commandments have such a profound meaning for me as a Christian. I feel sharing this passage with you is, “enough said”… for my blog today.
May we all strive to keep the Lord’s commandments to give Him GLORY!
