The words are written in books read around the world. They have been translated from their original language into English, Japanese, Mandarin, Hindi and virtually ever other tongue spoken on Earth. The words find themselves displayed in homes, businesses and even government bodies. In fact, even the United States Supreme Court has them on their walls. They are the Ten Commandments.
The Ten Commandments have power. They have power to share the love of God and they have power for God to convict people of their sins. Jesus Christ saves us through His Grace, but He didn’t come to destroy the law but to fulfill the law.
The Ten Commandments are a standard of excellence for everyone to strive to live by. We should have no other God besides the Lord our God. We should not kill or steal. We should not lie. We should not commit adultery.
A monument of the Ten Commandments now sits across the street from the courthouse lawn. The courthouse lawn is where private individuals had asked for them to be placed but some lawmakers chose to fear lawsuits and complaints from others rather than to have faith and allow the commandments to be placed there.
Even if the Ten Commandments monument is never placed in another public institution again, we should read them, write them down and memorize them. Most important of all, however, is that we live them. If everyone did, imagine how much better the world would be.
