Why did I end this series about the Ten Commandments with the first Commandment, “I am the Lord Your God?” The term “God” carries with it millennia of baggage, making it hard to talk about. God is an innately personal experience, and in this episode I share how I experience God in my day-to-day life. As this series comes to an end, I challenge all of you to find a small way to incorporate one of the ideas shared about the Ten Commandments into your everyday life.
