10 Commandments (MM)

"If you wander through an old cemetery, you see grave stones whose inscriptions are barely legible. The stone has weathered, perhaps it's covered with moss, and names and dates are difficult to read. I think something similar has happened to the Ten Commandments. In our hurried and complex lives, we're not making out the profound insights those simple words have for our daily living....

We squabble whether or not a monument with the Ten Commandments should be allowed in a town square. Those monuments are often of granite, their inscriptions won't deteriorate like old cemetery stones. But so what? If God's people have forgotten to lead our lives by these profound but simple guides, so what if they are or are not on a monument? Paul said, "You are our letter...known and read by all men." (2 Corinthians 3:2). Can people read your love for the name of the Lord?"
