December 12: Exodus 20:1-21

Welcome to The Intentional Podcast. Setting aside time for prayer and Scripture meditation can change the posture of your day. Thank you for spending a few minutes with us as we turn our attention to what Jesus has for the day ahead.

OPENING PRAYER:  

Before you read the Scripture for today, limit the distractions around you and spend time in prayer. Spend time thanking God for the opportunity we have to spend with Him through the reading of His Word.

SCRIPTURE:

Exodus 20:1-21

HISTORICAL CONTEXT:

The Ten Commandments are a framework for how to live a sanctified life, no matter your societal structure. In the ancient world, there were many different structures for societies and the Ten Commandments address how we are to live. God is calling us to live to a higher standard than the people around us.
