Being A Top Ten Dad

Exodus 20:2-20
Every statistic says that most men are somewhere between dabbling on the edges of a self-disqualifying and self-destructive sin, or actually wading right into it. Let’s take a look at the application of the Ten Commandments to find ten things a man can focus on to be a blessing to himself and his family.

      I.     Know Who is Bossv 2-3

A man who does not know God, does not know himself, and lives deceivedin his estimation of his life.

  III.     Beware UsingGod and Being Hypocriticalv 7
Those who use God as a personalreferenceshould walk under His control.
  IV.    Spend Timewith God and BalanceYour Life v 8-11
Prioritiesdo more than manage a day, they display the valuesand character of a life and maintain orderin the midst of chaos.
    V.     Show Respectto Authorityv 12
