Many people frequently exaggerate, brag, or slander. For some, telling a “white lie” is okay. But it’s not okay with God. If what comes out of our mouth is inconsistent with how we live, then we are liars. Lying violates the ninth commandment in the Bible, and God values integrity. Do you always tell the truth?

Theft is theft, whether large or small. It can be obvious theft, such as robbery; but it can also be hidden theft, such as tax fraud, stealing time, or even not paying back a loan. Today in our study of the eighth commandment, we consider how when we steal, we steal from God.

Stealing is on the rise as people say, “what’s yours is mine.” It’s more than burglary. People steal from their employers with hardly a second thought. We forget that stealing of any kind violates one of the Ten Commandments.

It’s dangerous to get too close to a fire. And it’s also dangerous to get close to a possible sexual sin. That’s why the seventh commandment teaches us to avoid all forms of such sin. Obedience to God’s command results in a life free of entanglements that can stop us in our tracks.

Each of us has a strong desire for intimacy. But keeping our sex drives under control is one of our biggest challenges. Sex in its proper place is a great gift, while passions out of control can ruin one’s future. So, what should we do in a world that only provokes our desires?

Good relationships provide happiness, and bad ones bring sorrow. Despite fragmenting homes, the Bible has a plan for the family, and God calls us to honor our parents. In this message we hear more teaching on God’s command designed to ensure stable and holy homes.

Long ago, God gave the Ten Commandments as a blueprint for living. Our failure to follow commandment number five is a big reason for the dismal state of many families. In this message we learn an important key to having happy and stable homes. Our parents are not perfect, but we are called to honor them, nonetheless.

A central commandment of the Law of God is the prohibition against murder. Yet hundreds of people are killed every year in each of our major cities. Life is cheap and gets cheaper when convicted killers never pay the price God commanded. What does God think about this?

Murder: it’s now so common that we often aren’t fazed by it anymore. But the taking of innocent life breaks one of the cardinal commandments of God. And since Roe versus Wade, that commandment has been broken untold millions of times.

God made it clear that all of us need to observe a day of rest. The concept is so important that He made it into one of the Ten Commandments. But now, Sunday is just another day to shop, work, or be on the move: not a day for reflection, meditation and prayer. What does the Sabbath have to do with us?
