Worship at Home This Week
by Rev. Annie Melick

Scripture: selections from Exodus 20

Then God spoke all these words:

I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery; you shall have no other gods before me.You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not acquit anyone who misuses his name.Remember the sabbath day, and keep it holy. 

Six days you shall labor and do all your work.

12 Honor your father and your mother, so that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

13 You shall not murder.

14 You shall not commit adultery.

15 You shall not steal.

16 You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

17 You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or male or female slave, or ox, or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.                              

Ponder this:  Which of the laws is most difficult for you? Jesus summed up the law with 2 laws: love God and love others. See if you can identify which one of these each of the Ten Commandments is associated with.

Prayer:  Lord, teach me to love and obey according to your plan. I love you and worship you now. Show me how to love others today. Amen.
