This will be short and sweet today…
I wasn’t your typical teenager. Most of my life people would consider me ‘a good girl’ meaning I didn’t get into trouble for doing the wrong things. This led to a judgmental attitude against, well, everyone for just about anything I felt was important. In the confessional I used to lie, confessing to false sins because I really didn’t know any sins I actually did- of course basing these false sins on those which are seen but ignoring those which are hidden in us.
For the most part I figured- I followed the Ten Commandments, and isn’t that all I needed to go to Heaven? Little did I know the full extent of what it meant to truly follow them, and what the Lord said about their importance or I would never have claimed to follow them. So for the next ten posts I will be writing about the Commandments and what they really mean, especially by today’s standards. For ease I will begin with the last one and work my way up to the first.
Before I begin:
How well do you follow the Ten Commandments?
Does this make you good enough for Heaven?
