Ten Commandments monument located in Goshen, Ohio
Everyone has a comfort zone in their lives. Something that they hold close to their heart at all times. People who love the world and the ways that the world lives and abides by and those of us who are Christians and do truly love the LORD GOD. Left and right, or up and down, we people choose as to how we want to live.
There are formulas, recipes, instruction books, manuals, and guide tools for every single thing you can think of in this world. I do mean everything for non-Christian things and secular things as well. But the one that is the most important guide tool to have in life is the Bible and what is in it. In the Bible you will find the ingredients for a healthy happy life . What the commandments mean to me.
The Ten Commandments.
1 Thou shall have no other gods before me.
This is where we do not pray or put the one and only true living GOD aside and worship anything or anyone other than HIM. Our GOD in heaven. What’s the point? If you seek to get into heaven where you can see GOD eye to eye, why worship anything else?
Thou shall not make for yourself any grave image.
Like Aaron did back in his time making a golden calf to bow down to, worship it and love it. This was made by mankind. That alone will tell you it is not right. No statues of people from in the Bible, or animals, or people not in the Bible. It is not logical to me to do so. Since when as a child I played with dolls. These dolls will not love you back talk to you or think and breathe life. So in comparison, these objects I see some people praying to wont either. The one and only true loving GOD of all heaven and earth will.
Thou shall not take the name of the LORD thy GOD in vain.
Well here is the thing, if you do not have faith in GOD you will say what you want. Maybe even more if you see people who do believe in GOD around as though to show them your disrespect to their faith in GOD and GOD as well. It shows the people who do have faith that you are doing something that is not very wise to do. You will understand in a way you did not expect to. For it is written that every knee shall bow!
Remember the Sabbath to keep it holy.
Well there are many people who choose to make Saturday their Sabbath day and not the Traditional Sunday. When before JESUS was named the Christ and savior of all mankind, as a child growing up he practiced Jewish traditions. And that was to worship on Saturday. But then when we as CHRISTians that followed JESUS CHRIST we use Sunday as the holy day. For by the calendar I use Sunday is the 7th day of the week.
Some Pastors explained from the understanding of reading the word that the Sabbath was a day of rest made for mankind. And this is according to scripture. “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath” (Mark 2:27). This is something that is debatable until we do read the word o GOD. What did JESUS say? In order to know we can read the new testament.

Honor thy mother and thy father.
I do not call another female my Mother. Period. No other female deserves that respect and honor from me. Nor any earthly man as to be my earthly dad given the same respect. Period. This is me. I see other people will say…”this is my second Mother”. Putting the other woman on an equal level as their natural real Mother. I can see if a person will say “She has been like a Mother to me for all of the love and help she did for me”. But no, I cannot put woman or man before my Mother or Dad on an equal level.
And I do know there are people who are adopted and don’t know their parents or in other situations. They are your Mother and Father now and are your new blessings. When you have good parents that took care of you and loved you more than they loved themselves, you give them the honor at all times. You will be blessed with a long , happy, healthy life according to what the scripture reads. “12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.”
Cool, see how GOD will bless us even more after having good parents? Awesome!!!! For my Grandma, Mother and aunt are strong GOD loving women who took care of me as a child even before they had to do things for themselves. Thank you FATHER GOD for my parents and elders who love me.
Thou shall not kill.
I can see people saying that in self-defence it is different for they had no other way to handle an attack. But GOD said not to kill. Romans 12:19 “Dearly beloved , avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine ; I will repay, saith the Lord”
Thou shall not commit adultery.
See many people looks like today see nothing wrong with this. And when they have this mindset, they assume everyone else is doing this so it doesn’t matter. They will see everyone does it. This is not accurate for there is no way in the world that these people do know what everyone is or is not doing.
It is not just the actual touching a person, it is the thoughts, and looking at a person and thinking of the sexual desires for this person or persons they are drowning in. Porn in any media realm, secular music, famous people be it in show business , church work, or politics . You will find people who are openly admitting to adultery as though they were talking about how they bake a cake. It is nothing to them.
See the current news of all of the men that are caught doing sexual misconduct right from movie stars , politics and churches! PORN is the basis for these sexual addictions! Keep it out of your life and your house away from your children at all times. It is a corruptible evil poison to the mind.
But exposing the youth to this mental addiction is something they will have to deal with their whole life long. They will be a burden to many or annoying with this addiction they will have being exposed to porn and other sexual perversions wherever they go.
They will bring this addiction into any relationship they are in. Marriage will be poisoned and they will always be looking at other people and lusting after them. If they will not stop, it ill break up their family because they put the addiction before GOD, family and taking care of the family.
Thou shall not steal.
We all know about stealing, be it white-collar wall street to petty stealing of candy a child will do. It does not matter who does it , where, or why. We need not to do it. There are some who do this because they want to just eat a meal because they are starving, and only GOD as it is written can be the judge of this and anything else we all do.
Thou shall not bear false witness.
Gossiping, saying things that are stereotypically incorrect about people who you do not know who don’t look like you, spreading rumors out of spiteful means, trying to lie on a person to get them into trouble over something they did not do. What ever, If you are doing this to cause intentional harm and you know that is what you are seeking to do….well then you just bared false witness.
We all have to be careful of what we say and do to each other. We can bear false witness on person when we lean our own understandings with GOOD intentions. So this is something to think about when we all speak of others.
Thou shall not covet anything that belongs to your neighbor.
If they read the BIBLE they would understand this. GOD hates sin, not the people. The sin.
We all need JESUS because we all are sinners. The Ten Commandments are what will put us all in a wonderful comfort zone of peace. You know you are doing your best to please GOD and to say you accepted JESUS as your savior.
I do pray that all who are not saved will be saved from reading this post. because if you have a computer and even reading this off of your phone….here is more scripture you can read to give your more comfort. Here is the link to Exodus chapter 20. I would read the whole chapter so you are not getting this out of context.
May a blessing be given to all who do read this post and share it.
