Keep the Commandments

Exodus 18-20 | April 18-24

Moses’ father-in-law, Jethro, brought Moses’ wife and sons to see Moses near Mount Sinai. He watched Moses as he busily took care of the needs of the people. Jethro realized that Moses was doing so much that he would wear himself out. Jethro helped Moses delegate some of his tasks to others. How can we delegate tasks to others when we feel overwhelmed, or help share the burdens of others?

The Lord told Moses to prepare his people. They washed their clothes and sanctified themselves to receive the word of the Lord. Moses received ten commandments from the Lord. These commandments would help the people to show love for God and for each other. Keeping the commandments would bring them blessings. The Lord asks us to keep these ten commandments today.

“Godโ€™s commandments are not given to frustrate us or to become obstacles to our happiness. Just the opposite is true. He who created us and who loves us perfectly knows just how we need to live our lives in order to obtain the greatest happiness possible. He has provided us with guidelines which, if we follow them, will see us safely through this often treacherous mortal journey.” Thomas S. Monson
