Once a famous and rich entrepreneur told Mark Twain, the great humorist, “I’m going to Mt Sinai and read aloud the Ten Commandments.” To which Mark Twain replied, “Why don’t you stay home and keep them? “ Mark Twain was noted for his clever and often sharp humor. But Twain often cut right to the heart of things. For instance the Ten Commandment are meant more to keep than simply to read. The commandments are nutritious tidbits for the heart, ways to build positive attitudes, and insightful interactions with those around us.
Mark Twain offers good advice. This present moment is perfect for living the Ten Commandments. Deeds are always more effective than words. They can help us live today well.
