Jesse Tree - Day 9 - The Law

Today our readings were the Ten Commandments (and that was the symbol as well) and the Beatitudes (I'm glad that wasn't the symbol!) Exodus 20:1-4a; 7a, 8, 12-17; Matthew 5:3-10.

Some days there seems to be an obvious connect between the old and new testament readings. I didn't get that today (I half expected the new testament reading to be the one where Jesus is asked "which is the most important commandment". But that wasn't it. It was the Beatitudes.

So the connect is... God gave us laws to live by; Jesus gave us another way to understand how we should live our lives.
