Today’s reading: 
Moses summoned all Israel and said: Hear, Israel, the decrees and laws I declare in your hearing today. Learn them and be sure to follow them. “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall no misuse the name of the Lord your God. Observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you. You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor. You shall not covet … anything that belongs to your neighbor.” The Lord said, “Oh, that their hearts would be inclined to fear me and keep all my commands always, so that it might go well with them and their children forever.

Thoughts to discuss:

  • Why do you think God gave us the Ten Commandments? 
  • How do these commandments show us God’s love? 
  • Say the Ten Commandments together. Look for God’s love in each commandment, and say, “I do” to God.
