Look At the Orientation of the Ten Commandments To See What God Desires From Us

And notice that all of the Ten Commandments are oriented toward others: God and neighbor.  Much of our piety is focused on “me and my inner life.”  Just look at the Christian Living section of the average bookstore.  Yet God’s commands are focused on what it means to be in a relationships with other: to trust in God alone and to love and worship him in the way he approves and to look out for the good of our fellow image bearers.
