Chaplains Corner July 2017

The Ten Commandments are of utmost importance in the moral and ethical systems of Christianity, Islam and Judaism. How about using five of the commandments for personal direction?  As written, they tell us what not to do. If we examine them carefully, perhaps turn them around a bit, they can also advise us what to do:
1) Heal those who have been harmed (From “You shall not kill”).
2) Respect all those who love you (From “You shall not commit adultery”).
3) Give more to the world than you take (From “You shall not steal”).
4) Value the dignity of truth (From “You shall not bare false witness”).
5) Content yourself with life’s necessities (From “You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods”).

I believe that no one who lives by these guidelines need to fear
