Digitized Ten Commandments

Cartoon of Moses and the Ten Commandments

“And it would be great if I can get this as a spreadsheet or word processor file.”

Are things any better with the immediacy of technology? Maybe not. Maybe it’s a wash. Digital files are more convenient and instant, but they can be deleted or corrupted in an instant.

Then again, Moses the original Ten Commandments were written in stone and Moses smashed them to pieces because of the Israelite’s idol worship.

Why Moses heard a lot of complaining

Cartoon: Let My People Go

Cartoon of Moses confronting Pharaoh

Cartoon of Moses and Pharaoh. Moses says, “The Lord says, ‘Let my people go!’ It will be good for your business.”

Pharaoh could have saved a lot of trouble by just letting the Israelites go. His ROI (Return on Investment) could not have been very good that year. Some people live and learn. Other tyrants don’t.

Cartoon: Pretend I’m Zacchaeus

Cartoon of a boy and dad. The boy says, "Let's sit in the balcony so I can pretend I'm Zacchaeus."

As a kid, I was fascinated with balconies. Maybe it was because our church didn’t have one while other, bigger churches did. Maybe it was because that was where all the rebel kids seemed to go so they could get away with mischief. Or perhaps it was because whenever I heard the story of Jesus and Zacchaeus, I imagined Zach in a balcony instead of a sycamore tree. After all, balcony and sycamore tree almost rhyme, right?

I drew this cartoon for the June, 2012, Church of God E-Newsletter.
