10 Commandments: how to respect them

10 Commandments: how to respect them

The 10 Commandments are the 10 basic rules that all good Christians follow to respect the teachings of Jesus and the principles on which Christianity is founded. ​They represent 10 simple golden rules that are the basis of civil coexistence and respect for others, from a Christian point of view. They were given by the Lord to Moses, during his appearance on Mount Sinai, while the Jewish people were fleeing from Egypt, where they were enslaved.
Don't you remember them?
Let's take a little review and discover our little tips on how to respect the Ten Commandments in every moment of your life.

1. You shall have no other gods before Me

This is the first of the 10 Commandments and it clearly says that the only God who exists is the Lord, the one and only. Christianity, we all know, is a monotheist religion and it only conceives the existence of a single God, who is our Eternal Father, who loves us all, at the point of sacrificing His only Son for our Salvation.
Always remember that our creation and salvation are related to the same entity which is Almighty God. He is the one and only to whom we owe everything; for this reason we must always be wary of those who want us to believe that our existence is due to other entities or circumstances. In Genesis, the first book of the Bible, it is amply explained how the creation of the earth and of man came about.
For any doubt, consult this passage in the Bible.

2. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain

This is truly an important sacrament, which is very often violated even by the most diligent Christians. Sometimes, when we are angry or upset, we don't know who to blame, and some of us make the mistake of turning to God as the one responsible. Of course He isn't, but the temptation to vent anger, one of the seven deadly sins, causes us to take God's name in vain. It is therefore very important to remain calm in the most ferocious moments of anger, and to realize that God is our greatest ally, our greatest strength and the One who loves us most of all, above all else.

3. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy

Do you remember the story of the creation of the earth?
God also rested on the seventh day. In the same way, you have to remember to sanctify the holidays, to dedicate the right time to rest. in a society that always wants us to be productive and slaves of money, be the one who knows how to dedicate time to rest, to family and loved ones. Working is what allows us to live, it's true, but we don't live to work, we work to live.

4. Honor your father and your mother

Our parents are the people who love us most in the world, almost as much as Almighty God. They are those who, out of love, gave us life, raised us and who will always be close to us, until the end of their days. Remember to always honor them, to respect them, to make them participate in the fundamental stages of your life, whether they are bad or good. Your parents will always be there to support and support you; do the same for them.

5. You shall not murder

Murder is the worst of sins a human being can commit. It is about depriving a person of the most precious gift that God has given us which is life. Life is a gift of inestimable value, it is a miracle, it is an act of love born from the union of the people who bring us into the world. Murder is the most opposite of this priceless gift. Always avoid it, with all your might.

6. You shall not commit adultery

Adultery is a very great sin which consists in the lack of respect towards our partner. When we decide to marry a person we are making a promise of love before God that will last for a lifetime. It is important to always honor that promise, in the name of God and in the name of love, the highest and noblest feeling a person can experience in life.

7. You shall not steal

Theft is one of the great sins that many people commit during their life. Many times, out of necessity or because of conditions of extreme poverty, some people engage in theft, trying to have a better and more comfortable life. But let's try to think from the point of view of the robbed: would we like someone to come and steal something of ours that we have obtained with extreme effort and sacrifice? Of course not. For this reason, whenever we feel the need to steal something from someone, taking the simplest and fastest way to obtain something, we have to think about what we would not want others to do to us. Let’s learn to impersonate ourselves in others and not to harm them. In this way, we will follow the teachings of Christ in the best possible way.

8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor

False testimony and lies can be very dangerous at times. Imagine someone who has been unjustly blamed: he will soon find himself having to answer for a fault that does not belong to him. Do you think it's correct? Of course not. For this reason, it is extremely important to always tell the truth, only the truth and nothing but the truth. Telling a lie or giving false testimony could seriously harm others, who instead have no fault. Again, try to impersonate yourself with your neighbor: this will help you to behave according to the morals, and the values ​​of Christianity.

9. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife

Respect for other people is at the basis of civil cohabitation.
When we get married, we make a promise of love before God and it is our duty to keep that promise for life. Desiring the woman (or man) of others could lead us to commit one of the seven deadly sins: lust, which is one of the great demonic temptations. For this reason, it is good to remove any desire towards a person who has promised his love to another person.

10. You shall not covet

Desiring something from others is closely linked to one of the 7 deadly sins: envy. Why want something that belongs to others when we can simply work harder to get it for ourselves? If we truly crave something very senselessly, we would certainly have much more satisfaction knowing we got it ourselves. Everything is in the commitment we put into it. So let's not give up and let ourselves be encouraged by our loved ones to pursue our goals.
