The rest of the simple rules.....


#4: "Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your god. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy."

How is this hard? It's basically telling us to have a day of relaxation to think about God and go to church. How easy is that?

#5: "Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you."

Respect our parents, and live amazing, long lives in heaven. Simple! If we do that one little thing by respecting our parents, he gives us life! How cool is that? It's a bargain!

#6: "You shall not murder."

Again, very easy. I don't even know why people murder. It's just so...dumb. He wants us to protect human life, not destroy it.

#7: "You shall not commit adultery."

If our world wasn't so terribly filled with sin, this would be easy. But we give into the devil so easily. If you don't know what this means let's put it as this. Be true to husband or wife. Don't have kids until after you're married!

#8: "You shall not steal."

Get something for yourself. Don't just take the easy way out and steal from somebody else!

#9: "You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor."

Don't lie about others. Don't gossip. Just be an honest person, like you've been learning about since preschool.

#10: " You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."

What you have is good enough. God gave you all that you needed. Enjoy it!
