"Ten Commandments” – The seventh, eighth and tenth commandment are all reminders that we need to be content with what we have and not be jealous of, or try to take, what belongs to someone else.
Today’s Lesson - “Honour Others”

“You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal…You shall not covet your neighbour’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”
These three commandments tell us that that we are to respect others and the things that belong to them and to keep the promises we make. We are not to try to take what doesn’t belong to us, but must honour others and be content with what we have.
1 Timothy 6:6-8 “Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.”
Paul reminds his friend Timothy that having contentment is like having a great treasure, because you’ll be happy with what you have, not always complaining about what you don’t. And when we’re content, we’re more likely to want to share with others, so instead of wanting what others have, we can honour them by sharing what we have.
• Sometimes we get jealous of what other people have. Is it ever okay to take someone else’s things?
• One of the ways we honour people is by keeping our promises. Have you ever broken a promise?
• The Bible tells us that being godly and content is like having treasure. How do these things make us ‘rich?’
• There are days when all of us want something we don’t have. How can we learn to be content with what we have?
Mark 12:30-31 - “And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’ 31 The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.”
Prayer - Thank you, God, for providing for me. Thank you for people to take care of me, for a place to stay, for food to eat, clothes to keep me warm and friends to have fun with!
