Reflections for October 5, 2014

 

Exodus 20:1–4, 7–9, 12–20

We are all familiar with the 10 commandments. Even if we can’t name them all, we know that the people of Israel received this revelation from God after their release from captivity in Egypt. Wandering in a strange land, these ways were intended to direct how people would live, and point them toward God. Today, these ways provide us with a similar vision for how God wants us to live. We wander in a world that challenges our relationship with God and with one another; these commandments help us to focus living lives transformed by God.

 

This week, reflect on which of the 10 commandments are most important to God’s vision for your life today. Make a list of specific ways you can live that vision. What do you need to change?
