A Pilgrim’s Ten Commandments

Filed under: — 4:18 pm

by Anonymous

1. Thou shalt not expect to find things as thou hast them at home, for thou hast left home to find things different.

2. Thou shalt not take anything too seriously, for a care-free mind is a prerequisite for a pilgrimage.

3. Thou shalt not let other pilgrims get on thy nerves, for they art also children of God and their feelings also deserveth respect.

4. Thou shalt not be anxious, for they that are anxious gaineth no grace from their anxiety, and few things are ever fatal.

5. Thou shalt remember that if God had intended us to stay in one place, he wouldst not have created us without roots.

6. Thou shalt at all times know where thy passport is, for a person without a passport is a person without a country.

7. When in the lands of the Bible, thou shalt be prepared to do somewhat as the locals do; and if in doubt thou shalt use thy God-given common sense.

8. Thou shalt not judge the people of a country by the one person who hast given thee grief.

9. Thou shalt remember to offer a “thank you” (and perchance a tip) to those who striveth to give good service.

10. Thou shalt remember that thou art a guest in others’ lands, and they that treateth their host with respect shall likewise be treated as honoured guests.
