God’s framework for living

After their long journey through the wilderness, the Israelites have reached Mount Sinai. The time has come for a fresh start with God, and Moses ascends Mount Sinai, where he receives the Ten Commandments from God. The first three speak of the relationship between God and people; the other seven of how relationships play out in the life of the community.

Today we explore the guidance God gives for living a God-centred life rather than a self-absorbed one. The Ten Commandments give us a framework for living, to grow up to be fully human, like Jesus: loving and compassionate. Sometimes love of God means expressing outrage, as Jesus did in the Temple.
