Fifth Day Of Christmas Reflects On Scripture

christmas-card-574742_960_720“The Twelve Days of Christmas” was written in England as one of the “catechism songs” to help young Catholics learn the tenets of their faith

Today is the fifth day of Christmas.

The song triumphs 5 Golden Rings = The first Five Books of the Old Testament, the “Pentateuch”, which gives the history of man’s fall from grace.

Those five books are the start faith and the meaning behind the structure. They are Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and DeuteronomyOne of the most important lessons recorded in the Bible is found in the first three chapters. The first humans, Adam and Eve, made a colossal mistake in their relationship with their Creator; and unfortunately this mistake has been perpetuated by succeeding generations, right up to the present. God spoke personally to Adam and Eve, instructing them in His way of life, giving them an opportunity to live a full, abundant life.

The books are the guide for how one should live in life and develop.

The Bible is a book that makes sense, and it is a valuable tool to provide daily guidance and direction in our lives. God, our Creator, inspired it to be written by men. It contains much needed teachings and truths in order for us to live happy and fulfilling lives.

Christ warns true Christians that they should “take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with … cares of this life.
