What does God want?

We crowd sourced the ten commandments this morning.  How many could people remember between them?  What sorts of things ought to be in the list?

The three most widely remembered commandments are do not kill, steal or commit adultery.  So we prayed for those bereaved by recent highly publicised murders, victim support and families which have been broken up.

We thought that 'you shall not covet' might be one of the least remembered, but actually it came half way up the list - and was expressed as 'do not be greedy' by some.

It was 'you shall not have graven images or idols' which hardly anyone remembered to be one of God's commandments.  We thought briefly about the way things like cars, celebrities and  money might actually make this an important commandment for today.

And the extra things?  Jesus' teaching to love our neighbours as ourselves was widely remembered.  'Respect the world and all that is in it', 'make peace' and 'seek and offer forgiveness' were among other suggestions.

In the doldrums of entertainment, not to make life and career progress. Entertainment is at least equal to work, or one part of the job is to say!
Pleasure itself is not a sin; but, can bring some fun things, will also leave than pleasure in itself a many times of trouble.
For God, the most enjoyable entertainment, is to see a man can fight with the fate of the unfortunate.
