Although the First Commandment "I am the Lord your God" appears simple at first glance, it actually set into motion the most revolutionary idea in human history -- ethical monotheism, the belief that there is one God whose main wish is that people treat each other decently. Dennis Prager explains that without this commandment, the following nine mean little. With it, the Ten Commandments become world-changing. Today, the idea of idol worship feels ancient and remote to many people.
Thus, the Second Commandment, "You shall have no other gods," doesn't seem applicable in modern society. But the opposite is true. We have more false gods than ever -- art, education, fame, money, to name just a few. Over the past century, the worship of false gods has led to massive evil; Communism and Nazism are just two examples. On a personal level, the worship of false gods leads to unhappiness.

Setting aside of day of rest each week was a revolutionary concept when it was first introduced as the Fourth Commandment.
But this commandment does more: it extends that day of rest to slaves and animals, and thus set in motion the slow process of ending slavery, and the compassionate treatment of animals. As Dennis Prager explains, the power of the Fourth Commandment to change your life is no less real today than it was for our ancient ancestors. Just ask the spouse of a workaholic how she would feel if her husband took off a day each week to spend with family and friends.
Children owe their parents one thing.
And no, it's not love. The Fifth Commandment understands that sometimes it's difficult or even impossible to love your parents.

But it's almost always possible to honor them. Dennis Prager explains what that means and why it's so important. And consider this: if your children see you honoring your parents they are much more likely to honor you. If asked to state this commandment, most people would say "Do Not Kill. But the English language has changed since Furthermore, Hebrew has two words for killing, just as English does.
