James Isenberg remembers teaching a lesson to a group of Boy Scouts one evening. The topic was the Ten Commandments. James asked the scouts if they could name any of them. They began to call out answers—some right, some wrong. One kid shouted out, “Don’t drink and drive!”
OK, that is some very good advice, but it didn’t make the Top 10!
That’s just a reminder that there are a lot of important instructions in the Bible. The list of things to do and not to do numbers far more than ten. While this fact might seem overwhelming at times, we need to remember that following Jesus is a lifelong process. We are continually learning how we can do a better job of obeying our Lord and Savior, Jesus.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”—Matthew 28:19-20.
