A Good Reminder

1 And God spoke all these words, saying,
 2 "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
 3 "You shall have no other gods before me.
 4 "You shall not make for yourself a carved image...
 7 "You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain...
 8 "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
 12 "Honor your father and your mother...
 13 "You shall not murder.
 14 "You shall not commit adultery.
 15 "You shall not steal.
 16 "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
 17 "You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, [or his car, or his tv, or his iPhone, or his Nikon camera, or his furniture, or his yard, or his glasstop stove, or his investments, or his job, or his salary, or his vacations, or his family, or his talents, or his personality, or his sense of humor, or his clothing, or his designer boots, or his nose, or his haircut,] or anything that is your neighbor’s."
