He characterizes these as three things we can all practice, especially those of us who are married, to stay a little less troubled in life. Having heard him talk about these before, I immediately grabbed a pen because from the first hearing, I'd wanted to do a blog post listing them:
- The 11th Commandment - "Thou shalt not presume anything."
- The 12th Commandment - "Thou shalt not presume other people can read your mind."
- The 13th Commandment - "Thou shalt not take anything personally - even if it was intended that way."
I particularly needed to hear number 13 this morning. And number 12 was pretty beneficial as well.
At a class one night, he talked about the possibility of a 14th commandment. Unfortunately, I didn't get it down when he said it, and he couldn't later remember it either.
