Wayward Wayne

Name three laws or rules you have never broken. (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1560).

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:36-40 NIV).

If I have violated the first two commandments above, I have violated all laws and rules in one way or another. And such is the case.  Someone might say, "That simply isn't so Wayne, you have not committed murder, you have not committed theft."  I reply, "Have you not read the Scripture, if one is angry with his brother that amounts to murder, and what constitutes envy or an overbearing sense of entitlement but a form of theft  in the heart?"  Thus we can see that rather than it being a matter of finding one or two laws I haven't broken, I find it impossible to name all I have.  And that, unfortunately, is one negative reason "all men are equal."
