Write the Commandments as Beatitudes

Categories: Moses, Ten Commandments (1-5)

Ask the students to write each of the commandments as if they were beatitudes. This helps them think of the message of the Commandment and the reward for obedience. For example: Blessed are ye when you make God your first priority for you shall be happy. Or: I am happy when I don't let anything interfere with my relationship to God. That way I'm always safe. Or: Blessed are those who adore only one God for they shall truly know God. Do two a week as you work through the Ten Commandments.
