Can You Remember All 10 of God's Commandments?

When driving into work I usually listen to Moody Christian Radio. This morning was no different. While I was crusin' down the I-55, toward Chicago, I was engrossed in the topic this A.M. A Pastor (I can't remember his name) was speaking about, how it seems that the generation of today, does not know the Bible as past generations have. He went on to say that Doctrine students of a recent college class, did not even know all the 10 commandments or where they were located in the Bible.

I thought to myself, "Well I know where they are located, let's see if I can name them." I started mentally counting them off. 1-2-3-4-5-6-7....I got only to 7! I couldn't remember all 10. I started counting them on my fingers out loud. 1-2-3-4-5-6-7....I still could only get 7.

The first thing I did when I went into the office was pull out my Bible from my desk. I looked them up. I can't believe that I couldn't remember all 10. I got the obvious ones, Thou shalt not Steal, Kill and so forth, but I am aggravated that I could not remember all 10.

I am going to write them out and post them on my refrigerator. I'm wondering, can any of you remember all 10? Now don't cheat & look them up first, but leave me a comment, just to let me know which ones you remember, just off the top of your head. Tomorrow I'll post the list of all 10 and the name of the one that got the most right!

Good luck, I know you probably can all remember more than I did. :) I hope you all have a Blessed day. Also the children are coming this weekend. Please pray for continued family progress, with the kids. We have all been doing really well, but bio-mom hasn't been encouraging the blending of the entire family. God is in control I know, and I pray that everyone will leave all bad attitudes at the door. It maybe futile, but I am praying that eventually, we will all truly love one another and get along. I told my Hubby the other day, we have a lot of years ahead of us together with these people. Graduation, ball-games, weddings, births of grand babies. Wouldn't it just be so much easier, if we loved one another? I know that this well not happen without God's help.

I recently came across a woman who blogs and she has 3 step-daughters and 2 nieces just like me. She gets along with the bio-mom. I am planning to ask her what her secret is.

Remember, This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

1 No other God before me
2.No graven idols
3 Take the Lords name in vain
4 Sabbath Day Holy
5 Honor your mother & father
6 Thou Shall not Murder
7 Thou shall not commit adultery
8 Thou shall not steal
9. Thou shall not lie
10 Thou shall not covet

How did I do??? I hope good - we just got done teaching the 10 commandments to our youth group recently!!!

Well I kept blending idols and coveting so I only got 8. Thanks for making me think.

This is the day is part of a song that was sung at my wedding. Thanks for the reminder.

You have such a good attitude about your blended family I am sure God's love will prevale.
