"Control Your Desires"
If you’ve been following this sermon series on the Ten Commandments, you know that I’ve been talking about two of them each week. On January 7, we summed up commandments one and two as “worship God first and only.” On January 14, we saw how commandments three and four come together in the instruction to “practice holy living.” And, last Sunday, we covered commandments five and six, the tall goalposts that give us the instruction to “respect other people.”
So, it would be logical if you thought that I would be pairing up commandments seven and eight today. But every plot line needs a few twists and turns, right? So, I decided to save the commandments about adultery and false witness for February. Today, instead, we’re going to focus our attention on commandments eight and ten: “You shall not steal” and “You shall not covet”—or, to put that another way, “Control your desires.”
