The remainder of the Ten Commandments are reviewed. While on the surface they are concerned with man's responsibility not to bring harm upon one another (through honoring his parents, not killing, stealing, sowing falsehoods, etc,) they ultimately come back to God. God is our Father, and dishonoring our earthly father is as an affront to Him. God values life, and killing, stealing, and bearing false witness against our neighbor are attacks on that life. The more these commandments are reflected upon, the more they yield applications in our love of God AND our love of neighbor.
