“What I’d like to invite you to do as we read this is to allow yourself to hear this text from a higher place. Often when we think of the Ten Commandment, we might envision a wagging finger. “Don’t you do it!” That’s not even close to what’s intended. What is intended here is more like “C’mon. Come, I’ll show you the way.”

 

Here is the Biblical Text from the JPS Hebrew-English TANAKH
“Honor your father and mother, that you may long endure on the land that the Lord your God is assigning to you. You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery.”
