What are the 10 Commandments?

The 10 Commandments are like a set of rules that God gave to people a long time ago to help them live good and happy lives. Here’s a simple way to understand them: 
 1. Love and respect God above all else. 
 2. Don’t make or worship idols (like statues or things) instead of God. 
 3. Use God’s name with love and care. 
 4. Set aside a special day to rest and spend time with God. 
 5. Honor your parents and listen to them. 
 6. Treat others with kindness and don’t hurt them.
7. Be faithful to your husband or wife when you grow up. 
 8. Don’t take things that don’t belong to you. 
 9. Always tell the truth and be honest. 
 10. Be happy for what others have; don’t be jealous.  
Following these rules helps us get along with others and show love and respect for God and each other.
