Ten Commandments

Devotionals based on the Ten Commandments

Thou shalt not Kill

God’s purpose in giving the Ten Commandments is to preserve unity, love and happiness among His people. These are the principles by which heaven is governed, and since Israel was entering into a covenant with God as His people, they needed to live by these same principles (Exodus 19:4-8). The principle is love—1) love to God; love to neighbor.

God's Special Day

God could have allowed creation to end on the sixth day. Nothing else was left to create; He had finished His work. However, as an artist places his signature on a finished work and a manufacturer places his label on a finished product God places His sign/mark on creation--the Sabbath.
