Ten Lords A-Leaping would have to be the Ten Commandments:
1) You shall have no other gods before me.
2) Do not make an idol.
3) Do not take God’s name in vain.
4) Remember the Sabbath Day.
5) Honor your father and mother.
6) Do not murder.
7) Do not commit adultery.
8) Do not steal.
9) Do not bear false witness.
10) Do not covet.
Within the boundaries of a football field the rules are laid down and the game progresses naturally.
The boundaries of God’s grace are not just a list of ‘do nots’ , but rather a set of white lines within which humanity may flourish. Flourish because the rules give us ability for freedom, to live gracious and beautiful lives without harm to God or other people.
