Commandments 3 & 4

REFLECTION QUESTIONS (Pick one and answer below)

2. Luther interpreted the Third Commandment as more than a day off. How do you understand Sabbath in our world today, especially with social media and technology? Do you ever need take a “Media Break”?

3. “Honor your father and your mother” is the only commandment that comes with a promise attached. Does the promise change your understanding of the commandment?
