LOVING GOD MAKES US HAPPY (1-11)

Commands 1-4 are about loving God

  • Love God alone (3)
  • Love God’s way (4-6)
  • Love God’s name (7)
  • Love God’s day (8-11)

Pursue God’s happiness and you’ll find personal happiness.

LOVING OTHERS MAKES US HAPPY (12-17)

Commands 5-10 are about loving our neighbor.

  • Love their authority (12)
  • Love their lives (13)
  • Love their relationships (14)
  • Love their property (15)
  • Love their reputation (16)
  • Love their success (17)

The greatest obeyers of God are the greatest lovers of neighbor.

LIVING THE BIBLE

Pursuing our happiness is not the way to happiness. Pursuing the happiness of God and others is the way to personal happiness.

Happiness is the bullseye of holiness.
