Rules, rules, rules, rule?

This Sunday’s Lectionary Readings are interesting and very timely. Having said that these particular readings are key to what it is to be Christian. Check them out for yourself by following the links at the end of the article.

There are many paths to potentially take, but the one I took was to tell the expectations of God, our commitment to them (often sadly lacking), the challenge of rules being the dominant force in our lives instead of qualities like grace and love, and also how to deal with those issues that grow out of proportion and effect our relationships as people, as community and more importantly our relationship with God as a consequence?

How should we behave towards each other when armed with what might seem a book of ‘Don’t do’ instead of what the Christian life is really about… freedom from sin and an ever-nearing relationship with trinitarian God.

Take a look at the Scriptures below…. what do you think?

Exodus 14:19-31 , Psalm 114,  Romans 14:1-12 and Matthew 18:21-35 .
