Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.

God made a covenant that we know as the Ten Commandments with the Israelites. Today these laws help us know how to love and worship God and help us know how to treat others with justice and kindness.
Give me understanding, that I may keep your law and observe it with my whole heart.
Children will learn that:
God gave the Israelites a set of laws, or rules, called the Ten Commandments that were to help them establish a new life, a new community;
God's rules are as important today as they were in Old Testament times;
Laws and rules are a part of everyday life and are intended to improve our lives and make us safe;
Following the Ten Commandments helps us make choices about things we say and do.
