What I Read Today;

Galatians 5; Luke 6; Isaiah 17; Psalm 50; Leviticus 25-26

Some people would like prayer to return to our schools.  I’ll be honest, I’m not sure about the idea of forcing non-Christians to pray is all that great an idea.  Others would like to see the Bible taught or the Ten Commandments posted.

While all of that sounds great, I guess, I think that I would rather that we read Luke 6:27-38 every day.

Instead of the Ten Commandments what if we taught these ten teachings of Jesus:

  1. Love your enemies
  2. Do good to those who hate you
  3. Bless those who curse you
  4. Pray for those who abuse you
  5. If anyone strikes you turn the other cheek
  6. If anyone takes your coat give them your shirt
  7. Give to everyone who begs from you
  8. Expect nothing in return
  9. Don’t judge
  10. Be Merciful

How different would our world be if we practiced these teachings in our individual daily lives?

  1. I’ve said for a long time that I would rather see the 10 Commandments lived out than to see them posted on some building. It would do more for our nation. And about prayer in schools? As long as there are tests, students will be praying!
