It’s Just Good Common Sense

I’ve always thought the Ten Commandments were a simple definition of moral Love is never taken (2)goodness. When you study them, it’s fairly plain to see they’re based on common sense revolving around loving one another.

 

We tend to get off base concerning God’s commandments, especially when we rush past the first one: You shall have no other gods before me.

When we put God first and everything else second, He will instill in us the desire to keep all His commandments. He will also instill in us the desire to love others, and when you love someone, you want them to have the best of everything. You certainly don’t want to take things away from them.

When we focus on God, He will instill in us the desire to do—and want—the right things.

You shall not covet your neighbor’s house, you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor any thing that is your neighbor’s. Exodus 20:17
