You could take the four words of the sixth commandment that are stated negatively and basically state them positively in these same two words-- Choose Life--and you would understand what this commandment is all about. In this message, Dr. Merritt details how God values life, and what our response to His words concerning life and death should be.
"The same God that creates our life is the same God that has the right to control our lives and that is why murder is so wrong, because it denies the sovereignty of God. It usurps a right that only God has, because there is only one Being in this universe that has the right to control both life and death, and that is God." --Dr. Merritt
