1. The Ten Commandments are positive. Though eight of them are stated in the "thou shalt not" form, the Bible shows how to think them through to their positive intent. For example, the apostle Paul wrote, "Putting away lying, 'Let each one of you speak truth...' Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor...that he may have something to give him who has need" (Ephesians 4:25, 28). The Ten Commandments form a fence to protect the sanctity of life, family, property, the truth and much more.

2. The Ten Commandments are spiritual. Though some people focus only on the physical aspects of the laws, the apostle Paul clearly states that "the law is spiritual" and "holy and just and good" (Romans 7:12, 14).

3. God intends the Ten Commandments to be written on, not stone, but our hearts and minds. "I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them" (Hebrews 10:16).

4. The Ten Commandments show us how to love. Paul lists five of the commandments and then says, "and if there is any other commandment, [they] are all summed up in this saying, namely, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself'" (Romans 13:9).

5. The Ten Commandments lead to eternal life. Jesus Christ said, "If you want to enter into life, keep the commandments" (Matthew 19:17).
