The Ten Commandments
Opening Song: "Keep the Commandments" Children's Song Book #146
Opening Prayer: Child
Scripture: Exodus 20:3-17
The Ten Commandments were given to Moses for the people of Israel to live by. The commandments are still important for us to live by today. Jesus said people should live the commandments and the prophet President Monson wants us to do the same today.
The Ten Commandments tell us that we should:
Worship God only
No taking Lord's name in vain
Keep the Sabbath day holy (list how to do this)
Honor thy mother and father
Shalt not kill
Shalt not steal
Shalt not lie
We need to try hard to keep God's commandments. They are important to live to be a good person.
