Sorry for the late blogging. Got a little behind yesterday on Sunday.
This reading is about the ten commandments. God is so Holy that only the people he allows to come to the mountain can come. He delivers the ten commandments which are the base line of human morality. I don’t think that God wanted us to look at these ten commandments as the pinnacle of moral success. Fast forward to the rich young ruler in the New Testament. He asked Jesus what he must do to be saved. He lays out his credentials as one who has followed the ten commandments. Jesus said that it was not enough and that he needed to sell all he had. We should not flaunt our following of the ten commandments before God as if to gain righteousness but rather follow them and then see what else God wants us to give up.
Tomorrow’s reading: Exodus 21-24
