God?s Commands

In our Bible Reading today we read some very important commands. God gave these commands to His people, the Israelites. And many of these commands are repeated in the New Testament.
The first command is: ?You must not worship any other gods except me? (verse 3). In Matthew 22:37b, Jesus said, ?You must love the Lord your God. You must love him with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.?
Another command from our Bible Reading is for children. Verse 12 says, ?You must honor (respect) your father and your mother.? We can read this same command in Ephesians 6:1-3. There is also a promise with this command. Ephesians 6:3 tells us, ?That promise is: ?Then everything will be fine with you. And you will have a long life on the earth.??
It is very important that we know God?s commands and His promises. Then we should obey His commands and remember that God always keeps His promises.
