Friday Freeze Frame

I was listening to 'talk radio' the other day. Something I rarely do, because 9 times out of 10 I wind up aggravated and wondering if we did more good instead of talking about more good the world might actually be a better place. But, I digress. This particular show was discussing this news story . And it got me thinking about the 10 Commandments.

They are found here....

In this chapter...

I started thinking, if we would all take these 10 simple steps to heart and follow them, the world would need less laws. Especially ridiculous ones like this.  Really? There has to be a law for saggy pants?  Or this.  Legislation for parents to report missing children in a timely manner? That's what our world has come to?

I honestly do not think more legislation is the answer. I do however think following these 10 rules would make the world a better, safer place.

Listening to your parents when they tell you to pull your pants up would be enough.

"You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor." - no lying. Or murdering. Those would take care of Ms. Anthony.

The question that keeps running through my mind is this, "If we can't follow 10 simple rules, do we really need to be passing more?".

Just some thoughts to ponder.
