A cow fell through a roof and killed a man this week.  If we had that happen in the US, Congress would pass a law outlawing cows on roofs.  Think about that next time a cow is on your roof!  It reminds me of an argument my children had when the youngest at that time was a skimpy preschooler, and somehow it was said that she could never kill anyone because she was too little.  My son, the eldest, then replied that of course she could if she jumped off the Empire State Building and landed on them.  Hmm, next time you are at the Empire State Building, look out for falling preschoolers.  I'm sure there is a law against that too. 

By Jesus' day, the Jews had passed so many laws, no one could keep them.  That's why Jesus summed them  up as "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your shall love your neighbor as yourself."  Do a heart, soul, mind check daily and keep your cows off your neighbors roof and you'll do okay.
