Seven Things Humans Can Do (reflection from

Hello Grafted In Reader,

Today is the last Monday in August, 2016. It is a mild warm summer day in my corner of blog land.

Today, my post is going to focus on Jewish roots. What does that mean?

For people who profess faith in the one true G-d, we inherit certain imperatives that are given to us by the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. One site I often like to read is

I found a Torah Commentary called "Lifeline" and this particular Torah summary is about Noah, (Noach) Genesis chapters 6 through 9, generally speaking.)

Within this segment, are seven categories that are incumbent on all humanity, especially persons of faith. Most the churches ignore these things or take credit for having innovated them since their beginnings as an institution. You decide!

These categories are given to humanity by G-d.
-Not to eat meat or a limb severed from a live animal.
-Not to curse the name of G-d;
-Not to steal or rob:
Not to worship idols;
-Not to commit adultery or have forbidden sexual relations with another;
-Not to murder another human;
-To establish courts of justice and ensure observance of the previous laws or categories.

Lord God, enable us to hide your Word in our being so that we naturally choose to live it in our daily lives with one another.

Kevod Yeheveh, His presence be with us.
