What is the foundation of right behavior?
How does one know what is "good" behavior and what is "wrong" behavior? From what set of rules do we follow? Do we decide what is acceptable or not, or do we look to our parents example? Maybe we look to society for how to act, or maybe whatever rules are set in our government as what is right or wrong.
Maybe you follow whatever is acceptable by your group, gang of friends, or maybe you just do whatever the rest of the people you are around do at the time, and change as often as the wind.
If you really want to follow a path that is right and good. Not only for your best interest but for the rest of your family, you will want to act according to what the one who made you, KNOWS is best for you.
"You must be HOLY because I, the Lord your GOD, am Holy." leviticus 19:2 living bible
Here are some very basic rules of life found in Leviticus:
*Respect and honor mothers and fathers
*Keep the Sabbath Day Holy
*Do not worship anything but your Lord Jesus Christ
*Do not keep all your harvest for yourself but give to others (money today)
*Do not Steal (taking anything that does not belong to you is stealing)
*Do not lie (deceiving others is lying. Businesses lie on what a item cost, big signs say get this item for only this amount, but when you go to buy it there really is a lot more money to pay. This is deception and lies) ( people lie on taxes) There is no such thing as a little lie, or little white lie, a lie is a lie!
verse 12 or leviticus 19 says, "you must not swear to a falsehood, thus bringing reproach upon the name of your God." How many people lie every day in court? "I swear to tell the truth and nothing but the truth so help me God" and then they lie through their teeth.
