Leviticus 10:10 …to make a distinction between the holy and the profane, and between the unclean and the clean, 11 and so as to teach the sons of Israel all the statutes which the Lord has spoken to them through Moses.”

            I ran across an item on my daily news feed that mentioned “teaching basic etiquette for camping” and was rather, brought up short. I thought for a moment how the basics of teaching simple socialization have seemingly fallen by the wayside. Jesus’ “Sermon on the mount”, certainly a misnomer, was very simply for those rude and simple fishermen, tax collectors, and other disciples and hangers on a crash course in basic human social behavior which pleases God. Those words have haunted Western civilization ever since they were uttered. In those words Jesus set the bar of human behavior so high that only with help could any of us achieve anything approaching that sort of interaction in this life. Yet, there it is.

            Why have we stopped utilizing these benchmark teachings as the fabric of our attempts at socializing the ignorant among us? Starting with little children continuing through adolescence and on into adulthood we have failed generation after generation. Do you remember patient, longsuffering Sunday School teachers who lovingly week after week endeavored to instill in you these very basic principles.

            Go back today and read Matthew chapters 5-7. If you read with an open mind and an open heart you will be driven to your knees in joyous realization that God has provided the means for you to live as Jesus asked us to live.
