Maybe I'm just too practical, so this resonates with me in the simplest of ways. But because I hate wasting paper, and ink, when I print something, I'll typically select the options of black and white and two-sided.
So when I read that the Ten Commandments which Moses brought down to the people were TWO-SIDED, I was thrilled! Because I don't ever recall a movie, an illustration, nor any depiction of the tablets as such... ever! Everything I've ever seen showing a representation of the Ten Commandments has them side-by-side... you know exactly what I mean, with the rounded tops; five commandments on one, and five commandments on the other.
But according to the book of Exodus, that's clearly not how God gave them to Moses. In fact, many people depict Moses working hard chiseling away while God speaks. That is also a myth. This verse clearly tells us that it was God's work... God's writing. In fact, Genesis 31:18 says they were written by the finger of God... displaying His strength and power; that He could carve into rock with just His finger.
So when we have that innate desire to be more efficient with time, resources and energy, remember, we were created in His image. If He was a God of the two-sided tablet... why would we not not also wish to be people who conserve, preserve and endeavor not to waste?
from my heart...
I write as an overflow... an expression of my true love for God and with a deep desire to encourage others in their day to day lives. For we can only find peace, joy, and satisfaction when we yield to the One who yielded His life for us.
