The Way to Life, Week Seven
Scripture: Exodus 20:13–20:13
The 6th Commandment You shall not murder.
Four words in our English Bible while only 2 words in the original Hebrew text. It is a terse and blunt command. No murder. Stop it. Don’t do it. The purpose of the commandments is to help us to love God and people. The 6th commandment is a short one but has a huge impact on helping us understand our lives and world. What it reveals about the heart of God and the nature of people cannot be overestimated.
