Matthew 22: 36- 40 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
People say that the 10 Commandments are irrelevant, old fashioned. Really?!! For those of you that think they need to change or they are just asking too much, tell me….How do you know what is right and what is wrong? I know that I can justify my behaviors. This is okay, because…well, because I say so…..It is easy to draw the line in the sand for ourselves and gradually move it to fit our needs and desires.
The greatest part of 10 Commandments is that of all the rules and regulations we follow in our life times, they are the only one’s that point us into relationship with God. They show us His jealousy, His desire to be in every part of lives, His hope for family, His desire for strong marriages. He even honors us with a commanded day of rest.
Take a moment and ask yourself….Do I make the Laws of God relevant in my own life? Are they the standard by which I choose to make all of the things in my life right or wrong? Or am I the only one setting my standards?
