10 Commandments – Sat – 22-08-20

I took some time recently to search the internet for quotes that sum up a concept. Here’s a few I found I think you’ll enjoy:

  • Robert Frost said, “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”
  • Arthur C. Clark said, “Every revolutionary idea seems to evoke three stages of reaction. They may be summed up by the phrases: (1) It’s completely impossible. (2) It’s possible, but it’s not worth doing. (3) I said it was a good idea all along.”
  • Winston Churchhill said, “The whole history of the world is summed up in the fact that, when nations are strong, they are not always just, and when they wish to be just, they are no longer strong.”
  • Ronald Reagan said, “Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.” There’s truth behind that humor.

The last two weeks we’ve looked at the ten commandments. How do we sum them up? I think the apostle Paul does this nicely in Romans 13:9-10, ‘The commandments, “Do not commit adultery,” “Do not murder,” “Do not steal,” “Do not covet,” and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this one rule: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.’ (NIV)
