Here God says REMEMBER... did he know we'd forget? God knows everthing that is to come. We need a strong reminder.
The Sabbath is of God... and by not honoring it as commanded, what does that say about us... and our relationship to God? "Hey God! Yeah.. I love ya, but .. hey, on my time when it fits my schedule." Bzzt. Wrong answer.
God gave to Moses the Ten Commandments... they were written with God's own hand. If you remember there was disruption about who God was talking with and who he wasn't. God cleared the matter when he said that for his prophets he used visions and spoke in dreams, but for Moses he spoke face-to-face. He didn't use parabels or such, he physically spoke and communicated with Moses. Infact, the first five books of the Bible were written by Moses... authored from God directly.
Interestingly enough, the ten commandments are commonly shown as two tablets of 5 and 5. This is not the case, the original two tablets were of 4 and 6. The first 4 were commandments of our relationship to God, the last 6 on the second stone were for our relationship between man.
