Less is more! 

Posted by Pastor Ron Friday, September 03, 2010 9:20:00 PM

I saw a church sign promoting the Ten Commandments.  Interesting.  Why would a Christian church be promoting the Old Testament law? 

Then I saw another and then another and  as I drove on it seem that every church in that area was bill-boarding the Ten Commandments.

Often less is more and that is definitely true in this case.   I was hoping to find the   Two Commandments posted somewhere on a church sign.  But nope, not even when I got back home.

Maybe I should fix our church sign! 

But it is probably more important that we make sure these two Great Commandments are posted in our hearts and lived out in our lives so that others can read them clearly.

A Pharisee who was an expert in Moses' Law said to Jesus, "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?"

Jesus said to him,

"'YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.' This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: 'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.' On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets."

Matthew 22:35-40
