The Ten Commandments

As I have been studying today’s Bible lesson, it mentions “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image,”.  Soon after, an unsolicited thought pops into my head from nowhere from the past when I suddenly realized that becomes a graven image from time to time since it is not connected with joy but regret.  With this gentle nudge, I began to study the 10 Commandments closer and deeper.  For example “Thou shalt not take the Lord’s name in vain” means so much more to me now.  Since I don’t use the word “damn” after God’s name, I thought I was home free until I realized that any comment after “I Am” that is ungodlike can be seen as blasphemous.

Hebrews 12:28-29 reads “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our ‘God is a consuming fire.'”  While studying deeper, everything becomes fresher to me rather than rote!  I will look at all things anew today with childlike innocence and without judgment.
