A few weeks ago, my pastor’s sermon made me squirm in my seat.
We’ve been studying the Old Testament book of Exodus. That’s the book that talks about God rescuing the Israelites from their centuries of slavery in Egypt, all the plagues upon the Egyptians, how Moses parted the Red Sea and fed the Israelites with manna -- honey-tasting bread from heaven.
At one point, Moses meets with God on Mt. Sinai where God gives him two stone tablets with his law written on them.
God’s law is a gift to his people, my pastor said.
