Ten Commandments

God led His people, the Israelites, out of slavery in Egypt. Then, with Moses as their leader, they traveled to a new land that God gave them.
God knew that His people needed some rules to help them live close to Him. These rules taught the Israelites how to love God and how to get along with other people. Some of these rules are called the Ten Commandments. We can read these ten rules in our Bible Reading today.
God gave these rules to the Israelites many years ago, but they are still good rules for us today. These rules help us know how to worship God and have good relationships with other people.
When Jesus lived on earth, He used these rules in His teaching. He encouraged people to follow God’s rules every day. Take time to read these rules in your Bible. Then study them and apply them to your life today.
