Today I passed a church with the ten commandments printed on a sign in front of the church. It was titled God's Ten Commandments. I thought "What would they say if man wrote them?" So I decided to write the ten commandments the way we live them.
Man's Ten Commandments
ONE: 'You shall have no other gods before Me.' Unless you can see where they will lead you.
TWO: 'You shall not make for yourself a carved image--any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.' Except the credit card in your wallet.
THREE: 'You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.' Except when you are very angry.
FOUR: 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.' Except when you stayed out too late on Saturday night to attend church on Sunday.
FIVE: 'Honor your father and your mother.' Unless they try to tell you what to do.
SIX: 'You shall not murder.' Unless you have a very, very good reason.
SEVEN: 'You shall not commit adultery.' Unless your mate doesn't understand you and your new partner is really good looking.
EIGHT: 'You shall not steal.' Except from the office and you are sure no one will notice.
NINE: 'You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.' Unless you need to get back at them for something they did.
TEN: 'You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.' Unless you feel they don't deserve it as much as you do.
