Every time we read the Bible, we get instructions through God on how to behave correctly in our lives. We should never take God's commandments lightly. Therefore, it is important to know what they are.

God gave us the Ten Commandments to help us understand how we should act towards Him and one another. Breaking some of these commandments is punishable by law, and some are not, such as misusing the name of the Lord. You will not go to jail for that. However, breaking any of God's commandments carries spiritual consequences, such as an unhappy life, or even life without God. The Bible says, "Be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you. So that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess. (Deuteronomy 5:32,33).
