Commandment #6

Exodus 20:13
"You shall not murder.

Hello guys and gals.
My day yesterday was uneventful. I did however get to see a brother-in-law I enjoy visiting. I was hoping to go swimming with my wife and little boy, but my wife didn't lay him down for a nap until almost 3 pm. Swim time was over at 4:30. There was no way we could make it then.

I have been struggling with somethings yesterday and today, and I really need you prayer warriors to life me up. I have some things that I have to leave in God's hands and that is always hard. There is some stuff that I have no control of and God will just be taking the wheel on them. I hope I am not in for a roller coaster ride.

Commandment #5 "You shall not murder." That is cut and dry, isn't it? I know where I work I see all kinds of people come in, and murders are some I deal with. I have said this before and I will say it again. Sin is sin, there is no degree of sin. I know that our mind does not grasp this concept very easily. In this world we do have degrees of charges and you have to pay for your crimes, but in God's eyes murder is the same as a little white lie.

Lord God I thank You for Your words to share with my fellow sparkers. Lord please be with me and give me strength to do Your will and not mine. Lord I love and worship You. In Jesus' name I pray Amen.

    WallaHalla, I agree. I just did not find the scripture to put that in my blog. I want everything about scripture in my blogs to line up with God's word.

    MJRVIC2000, I do look for Christ in people. I work in a jail and I see the worst of our society come in there. I have seen people that claim to be Christians treat some of these guys like dirt for the sin they have committed. I try to be the example God wants me to be. Although I am only human and fall short of that sometimes.

    I am sure many thought this was a cut and dry commandment, until God let them know that if they hated anyone in their heart it was the same as murdering them. 1 John 3:15.

    ZACH! Start looking for Christ in people, for good in them and not the negative things. When you learn to see good and Christ in others, that will encourage you rather than discourage you. I see the good and Christ in YOU! God Bless Vic.
