God gave us the Ten Commandments. But that was not good enough for many. They needed more rules and regulations so they expanded them. In the process, they also had to change God into their own image, made him look the way they thought He should. Here is a thought, try to live one week obeying just the Ten Commandments and see how that goes for you. Start with number ten today, “You shall not covet…” and, if you are able to go all day without envy toward another or desire what they have then, work your way up from there.
