We all hide messes in our lives. Some hide them so well that no one would ever know how much of a mess they really were in. We can hide our messes from friends, family, and neighbors. There is only one that you can hide your mess from and that is God.
In the old testament there are 613 laws given to the Israelite people. All of which are derived from the 10 commandments.
