This week we will take a look at Exodus 20:1-20.
Yes, we will reflect on the Ten Commandments.
As we ponder the Ten Commandments, we will discover that they raise for each of us the question of where the Ten Commandments belong in our own lives. We need to ask ourselves: Am I displaying them clearly in my own daily words and deeds? Am I keeping them prominently posted in my personal life?
Some still call them the “Ten Suggestions” when God clearly says they are “Commandments”. Taken together they are the world’s most enduring legislative code. Properly observed and applied they would create a just and fair social order. When lived as a personal code they anchor our life in eternity.
