We are not talking about the striking jaw line of a catwalk model, or the rock-hard abs of an Olympic athlete. We are talking about some ancient wisdom chiselled on tablets of stone that still form the foundation of our western society.

“So Moses chiselled out two tablets of stone…” (Exodus 34:4)

God was about to download to his people some new rules for the road… And, like any teenager desperately searching for some WiFi, Moses was standing ready with his tablet…

These centuries old rules still speak to the social media obsessed society we live in today; they remind us to slow down, to recognise the importance of healthy relationships, they help us not to get jealous, and to think beyond ourselves.

This ‘monolithic ten’ continue to provide a moral compass to our modern society that has swapped chiselling on stone tablets… for typing on electronic ones.

Though sadly we no longer have the originals (not even in the British Museum!) their content is just as relevant today. They are ten personal pathways to a better life.
