Day Eight Jesse Tree - Two Stone Tablets

December 8 means that today is Day 8 of the Advent Calendar Jesse Tree devotions.

Day 8 Ornament - Two stone tablets (the Ten Commandments)

Day 8 Scriptures - Exodus 1-15, Exodus 20 and Exodus 32:15-18 (the account of the Ten Commandments); and

Psalm 119:11 - "Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You."; and

Galatians 3:19 - "Why, then, was the law given? It was given alongside the promise to show people their sins. But the law was designed to last only until the coming of the child who was promised. God gave his law through angels to Moses, who was the mediator between God and the people."

The Old and New Testament readings tie each other together by explaining that God gave the Law to let people see the fullness of their sins and the consequences of their sins. But, when Christ came - Love conquered all.
