Do you ever think about the ten commandments as just an old-fashioned list of things you can’t do? A bunch of “thou shalt nots”?
I read an article recently—it’s for kids, but don't worry, if you’re an adult you’ll get something out of it, too—about turning those commandments around and making them “thou shalts.” I thought it was a great suggestion, so I gave it a try. You’ll see what I mean as you read my blog each week!
If you’re not familiar with the ten commandments, or have forgotten one or two of them, here’s a list to remind you. If you want to read them in their entirety, or in several Bible translations, go to biblegateway.com and search for Exodus chapter 20.
I hope these insights will inspire readers to think more spiritually about themselves and the world around them!
