This is a follow-up to my March 19 post – For the Love of God – in which I shared a handout comprised of numerous examples of actions that either violate the first three commandments or represent virtuous acts done in the spirit of these commandments.
One example that I feel particularly strong about is the issue of bullying. This is such a big problem in schools and it would seem to make great sense to consider it under the 5th Commandment because it is a form of violence and disrespect for human life. I think that if the Ten Commandments are going to have an impact on the kids, they have to speak to real life issues for them.
If you have any thoughts about the issue of bullying and the Ten Commandments, I’d love to hear from you!
