Back in 2012 during worship people were asked if they could write an 11th commandment what would it be. Here are some responses:

Words of Life - 2012

Listen for the voice of God who speaks even when we don’t hear.

Do a good deed daily.

Never stop reading the Bible.

Realize my potential and try to pass it.

“Fair” does not always feel good.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Put others before yourself.

When talking with someone they should leave the conversation feeling as good or better than when the talk started.

Eliminate hurry.

One lone eagle is a reminder of God’s presence.

Take everything to God in prayer.

Be respectful of others no matter the situation, good or bad or how you feel about it.

Remember you are God’s servant and love unconditionally.

Smiles are free so give them away.

Dare to be different.

Welcome all — exclude no one.

Let it be said: He is not a person… he is an experience.

Lead a prayerful life. Live the golden rule. Love your neighbor.

Use your own best judgment at all times.

Try to recognize mistakes before you make them.

Be a positive deviant.

Love everyone like a sister or brother, because they are through Christ.

Free your heart from hatred. Free you mind from worry. Live simply. Give more. Expect less.

Make others curious about your light.

Life is like art; it is even more beautiful when you step back and see the whole picture.

Do the right thing and watch how people react.

Keep moving, write things down, grow things.


Show kindness to everyone, even when you don’t feel like it.

Appreciate the morning. Communicate with family. Say thank you at every opportunity.

Respect one another.

Volunteer, get involved, it helps you to appreciate and understand your own life.

In the morning have a quiet time for meditation.

Listen to the birds.

Live boldly.
