Deuteronomy 11:18-21

International-children's-day[1]The Interior Law – Part VI

Therefore, take these words of mine into your heart and soul. Bind then at your wrist as a sign, and let them be a pendant on your forehead. 

We study Hammurabi’s Code; we memorize the Ten Commandments; we risk all that we have to create constitutions that guarantee security and liberty; we come together as nations to proclaim that children have universal rights; we preach our own set of laws each day in the way we interact with others.

Teach them to your children, speaking of them at home and abroad, whether you are busy or at rest. 

UNICEFWe pass along the good and the bad, the graced and the terrible; we live our own Gospel as we go about our work and play.

And write them on the doorposts of your houses and on your gates, so that, as long as the heavens are above the earth, you and your children may live on the land which the Lord swore to your fathers he would give you.

It is a great irony that so much violence takes place in the name of God. Let us consider these words today and determine to live an exterior life that enacts the love of God who lives within each of us.
