In those days: God delivered all these commandments…(Exodus 20:1)
Today we hear God giving the 10 Commandments to Moses and we can break them down into two categories: love of God and love of neighbor. The first 3 deal with the Sabbath, keeping God alone as our focus of worship, and speaking God’s name with reverence. The remaining 7 are all about maintaining right relationships with those around us. So, instead of looking at the Commandments as things we can’t or shouldn’t do, how about we look at them as things we should do: love our God and love our neighbor with all of our heart! Let us focus on the spirit of the Commandments—LOVE—and let us treat the LORD and EVERYONE as we are treated by God—with mercy, compassion, kindness, and love! Amen!
