Today is January 3rd-Happy "Tenth Day of Christmas"!
Today we think about the “Ten Lords A-leaping."
They which represent the Ten Commandments found in Exodus 20:1-17:
1) You shall have no other gods before me;
2) Do not make an idol;
3) Do not take God's name in vain;
4) Remember the Sabbath Day;
5) Honor your father and mother, and you will live long;
6) Do not murder;
7) Do not commit adultery;
8) Do not steal;
9) Do not bear false witness;
10) Do not covet.
Today we contemplate our inability to follow these commands…
We acknowledge our ineptitude at perfection, yet rejoice in our ability to hold onto The One Who is Perfect... The One who came to take away the sins of the world…
Today we remember that Jesus instructs us to “Love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength…and to love our neighbor as yourself,” and show us that following this simple rule makes is easier to live a life that promotes human flourishing.
Today we reflect on how we can stay in this frame of mind throughout the coming New Year, and how we can promote human flourishing (ours and that of others) in order to glorify God.
