God’s 10 Promises…

Posted in Christianity, inspirational by fatherjimb on June 30, 2009

When God gives these commandments, God makes promises to us. God says:

I promise to be your God… you shall have no other gods before me.

I promise to be there for you… you shall not idolize people, wealth or things that take you away from me.

I promise you a good name… you shall not make wrongful use of the name of the Lord your God.

I promise you I will be God and provide you rest… you shall remember the Sabbath day, and keep it holy.

I promise you stability… you shall honor your father and your mother.

I promise you life… you shall not murder.

I promise you my faithfulness… you shall not commit adultery.

I promise you my generosity… you shall not steal.

I promise you truth… you shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

I promise you what you need… you shall not covet.

Rather than a list of “do not’s” The Ten Commandments are really a list of great promises of love that God has for us.
