Ethics and morals have become skewed in our world today. People want to live life on their own terms, but God has given us a clear and concise path to follow through the Ten Commandments. Unfortunately, too many people see these Commandments as simply a list of dos and don’ts, but the truth is that obeying these Commandments leads to a rich and full life. And ultimately, these commands teach us to live in love toward God and others. With this fresh look at the Ten Commandments, we won’t focus so much on the things we’re not to do. Instead, we’ll take a look at the ways obedience frees us to live for Christ.
