Tenth Day of Christmas


10. On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me a spice jar:

That way, we can season our words with grace, encouragement, and love. Do not let any unwholesome take come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen (Ephesians 4:29).

By Tom Neven

And from Something Sublime:

Ten lords a-leaping represent God's 10 commandments as found in the Bible in Exodus 20:1-17. The 10 commandments are God's law given to Moses on Mt. Sinai. God spoke directly to Moses and etched His commandments in stone. Of course, the people were terrified but God ordered Moses to tell them: "You have seen for yourselves that I have spoken to you from Heaven..." God's commandments are His laws for us to live by. We have seen for ourselves what God has spoken through the Bible. The first four laws of the 10 commandments describe our duty to God. The last six laws describe our duty to ourselves and others. Remember these?...

  1. You shall have no other Gods before Me.
  2. You shall make no idols in any form.
  3. You shall not misuse the name of God.
  4. Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.
  5. Honor your mother and father.
  6. You shall not murder.
  7. You shall not commit adultery.
  8. You shall not steal.
  9. You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor (fellow man).
  10. You shall not covet your neighbor's house, spouse or anything belonging to him.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
