Topic: Exodus 20:6
"and showing lovingkindness unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments." (Exodus 20:6)
James Madison, the fourth president of the United States, once said:
"We have staked the whole future of American civilization not upon the power of government... (but) upon the capacity of each ... of us to govern ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God."
I like that! God gave the Ten Commandments to Israel while they were encamped near Mt. Sinai. God promised the Israelites (and us), He will show love for those who love Him and keep His commandments.
We Americans, especially our government leaders, would do well to memorize and abide by the Ten Commandments.
Today, write down the Ten Commandments. They're found in Exodus 20. Post them prominently. And learn them! Then pray for our nation, especially our leaders, to know and abide by them. America's future is at stake!
As you read through the Ten Commandments, were there any that caught your attention or tugged at your conscience?
