Complete the catechism lesson on the 10 Commandments today. Regarding the 7th Commandment, consider how this commandment teaches us how God feels about personal private property and how we reconcile our understanding of the 7th Commandment and different socioeconomic theories. Regarding the 8th Commandment, think about how much does reputation matter in our lives, how this commandment instructs us in patience and love toward our neighbors, and where the popular phrase “Judge not lest you be judged” plays into all of it. Regarding the 9th and 10th Commandments, learn about why we have two commandments on coveting, the finer points of these two commandments, and how these two commandments bookend the 10 Commandments along with the 1st Commandment.
