Exodus 20:1-17 The laws that God gave to Moses are for the good of all people. These laws tell us that we are to love, worship and obey the one true God. We are not to make idols or bow down to them. We should not use God's name in a disrespectful way. All people should set aside one day each week to rest and worship God. Children should obey and honor their parents. We must not murder. We must not commit adultery. We must not steal. We must not make false statements about other people. And we must not desire the things that belong to others.
