The Tenth Day of Christmas!

Exodus 20:1

And God spoke all these words…

The awesome thing about the Ten Commandments is that they were spoken by God.  The next most awesome thing is that we can understand them.  A Being that invented the mysteries of quantum physics and the impenetrable enigma of every cell in your body needn't, once you think about it, have done either.  But He did both.  And because He did, we began to know Him.  In the giving of the Ten Commandments, His word was spoken.  In the birth of Jesus at Christmas, His Word became flesh.
