Second Commandment

My pastor at FBC is currently going through a series on the Ten Commandments, and I remembered these hand motions that my pastor at TBC back in CT taught me as a kid.

The second commandment is: "You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments." - Exodus 20:4-6

The hand motion is: two fingers to the side, opening and closing like scissors. I don't think people normally used scissors to make idols, it seems they were usually made out of stone or metal or wood, but the meaning is still there. Don't make stuff to worship (more specifically, don't worship things - only worship God).
