In our pluralistic society, we're often told that everything is "relative." However, this is not what the Bible teaches. The Ten Commandments are not the rules of a vengeful dictator but rather the guiding principles of a loving Father.

Jesus came to fulfill the law, not to abolish it. As believers, we must hold to Biblical standards and return these timeless ideals to their rightful places in our lives.

READ: Ex. 20:1-26; Ex. 34:1-17,29-35; Deut. 5:1-33; Mark 10:17-22; Mark 12:28-34; Rom. 13:8-10.
HEART ISSUE: In what ways has our society overlooked or ignored God's laws? How does this relativism affect you and your family?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, thank You for calling us back to what matters most. Forgive us for falling short of what You desire for us. Give each of us a mind that longs to walk in Your truth. Thank You for more opportunities in the future to bear witness of Your goodness, love and mercy. Amen.
