Reading along with us in Deuteronomy? Here’s today’s reading:

Deuteronomy 6 (ESV)

“Now this is the commandment—the statutes and the rules—that the Lord your God commanded me to teach you, that you may do them in the land to which you are going over, to possess it, that you may fear the Lord your God, you and your son and your son’s son, by keeping all his statutes and his commandments, which I command you, all the days of your life, and that your days may be long. Hear therefore, O Israel, and be careful to do them, that it may go well with you, and that you may multiply greatly, as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has promised you, in a land flowing with milk and honey.

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gatesContinue Reading

  1. Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 5You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 7You shall teach them diligently to your children,❤️

  2. God is about to lead His people into the land He has promised and drive their enemies out before them, providing Israel with everything they need for their physical survival and enjoyment — cities already built, homes filled with furniture and decorations and provisions, crops already growing, cisterns already dug and full of water. After 40 years in the desert, relying on God for daily sustenance, will they forget Him once they have all that they need plus some?

    This reminds me of ME. Heavenly Father, let me never become “comfortable” if my comfort would lead to my forgetting You, taking You for granted, and giving up my dependence on You for all things.

  3. Love the Lord with all your heart with all your soul and with all your strength…selah. How I am doing and not doing that? When the rubber meets the road, who do I love more and how is that reflected in my life?

    And in order to do that His commands must be central to our lives. Talk about them, tell your kids, put them in places that you can see, make sure you surround yourself with reminders of me and my word.

    And I too, Michelle, was struck by receiving things in this land of bounty that have come from others and is thereby a gift of God to them. But how easy it is for us to be self sufficient. To take all that God has given us and let that allow us to forget Him. And we do it in subtle ways. Not fists shaken at God in defiance, but in not spending time in the word, not praying, not being filled with the spirit, functioning in the work of God without the power of God, and avoiding those things that He would want us to do that are really uncomfortable for us….good things for me to reflect on….

    And do not follow other gods…don’t let the world direct you to what and who you will worship.
