What is the law of God stated in the 10 commandments? You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol. You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God. Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Honor your father and your mother. You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not give false testimony. You shall not covet.

John Yates: “The commandments are our treasure. We cherish them. They’re a great gift, a love gift from God. They guide us. They warn us. They protect us. When we keep them, we show others what God is like. When we fail to live them, we bring great harm to ourselves and we dishonor our Maker.”

This week’s answer is quite long, but don’t fret, we’ll be spending several weeks on these commandments. So you’ll get plenty of time to learn them. This week focus on the fact that there are 10, that the first 4 deal with our relationship with God and the last 6 deal with our relationship with each other. Here’s a nice video about God’s law from the Bible Project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BGO9Mmd_cU&feature=youtu.be
