(From BONUS below get pictures of a soccer ball to help you kick dust-man habits and “score” healings for your team)

Jesus says the greatest of the two great Commandments is to “love God with all your heart… soul & … mind” (Matt. 22:37). It’s lived by whole-heartedly putting into practice the 1st 4 Commandments, summed up below:
#1 I pledge to: Love God, good alone & celebrate examples of Love’s unfailing, freeing power whenever tempted to be worried!** (Worry is really just ingratitude in advance.)
#2. I pledge to: Quit thinking most about material things and bodies that will never be “up to the job” of being God.
#3. I pledge to: NOT to be saying O.M.G. (“Oh, My God!”) unless I am praying God’s name in expectation of a quick answer!
#4. I pledge to: Remember—give loving attention to—God’s Genesis 1 Sabbath & work out from perfection, not up to it!

Jesus says the second great Commandments is to “love your neighbor as yourself” (Matt. 22:39). It’s lived by whole-heartedly putting into practice the rest of the Commandments, summed up below:
#5. I pledge to: Respect and obey all RIGHT authority figures and boundaries in my life.
#6. I pledge to: Refuse (re-fuse) to get angry, make fun of or put anyone down!
(Such unchecked ,"supposed superiority" leads to killing as Jesus tells us in Matt.5:21+)
#7. I pledge to: Seek deep satisfaction in all God’s given and keep my promises
(Unchecked looking with lust is adultery and leads to it… as Jesus tells us in Matt.5:27+)
#8. I pledge to: Stop trying to GET happiness & instead try to GIVE it!
(“to impart truth, health and happiness… is… my reason for existing… …” My. 165)
#9. I pledge to: Stop saying what’s not REALLY true of others or myself (To bear true witness: "I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God!”)
#10. I pledge to: Feel & say of others’ good “Thank You God! That’s Mine Too!
(T.Y.G.! T.M.T.! Is more powerful than T.N.T.! (And, that's dynamite)

Promise of a Worry-free, best-yet year from “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to him:” (Rev. 1:1)
For a winter that sings, be among those who get the victory over the animal –“the victory over the beast, … stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And … sing the song of Moses … (the 10 Commandments) and the song (the Beatitudes and Sermon on the Mount) of the Lamb (Jesus)” (Revelation 15:2-3)

BONUS for 10 Commandment PICS on HULA HOOP & Soccer ball: Hopefully, you and your class will enjoy using my homemade teaching aids of a customized soccer ball and hula hoop. You could review (as written on a hula hoop) some thoughts and habits that are “going around” these days and see how each one is actually a tempting way to think or act that breaks a Commandment and so gets you to settle for a lesser potential version of yourself and of mankind. Right above each temptation going around on the hula hoop is a pledge to counteract that temptation written on part of a soccer ball so as to help you score your highest goals. Your students and you can take turns saying each pledge aloud (or as a silent prayer) as a commitment to better keep each Commandment and fulfill your highest potentials.

God’s kingdom is found right within each of us as we daily commit to gladly obey each Commandment and feel the harmonious wholeness (God's kingdom) within that comes from expressing “the whole of man in His image & likeness.” [SH 340:9+, S31; Deut. 7:9; Ex. 20:1+]
