What God said to Moses goes something like this (1) I am God, the Holy One, and I am beyond all human understanding and at the same time I love you more that anyone else (3) so be thoughtful when you talk to me or about me. (2) Practice following where I lead you. (4) I rested on the seventh day. Follow my example. Rest - and think about me and you. (5) Show honor and respect to your parents, to people who help you, to people who teach you and give you work. Show honor and respect to the people you teach and ask to do things for you. Show honor and respect to all your friends and neighbors. (6) Keep my creation, the people and the planet, healthy and alive. Help people live to be the best they can be, including yourself.
