SUMMARY: Law summary
OVERVIEW: God graciously provides a second set of tablets with the Ten Commandments, and Moses reminds Israel to fear God and serve him forever.
BIG IDEA: Fear the Lord your God and serve him.
KEY VERSE: Deuteronomy 10:12–13 (Moses to Israel)
And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you? He requires only that you fear the Lord your God, and live in a way that pleases him, and love him and serve him with all your heart and soul. And you must always obey the Lord’s commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good.
IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I want to be in a relationship with you. I don’t want to be someone you only call in a crisis. I will be available then, but I also want you to see a sunset and think of me. When you’re engaged in a conflict with another person, I want your first thought to be to ask me to intervene. I want you to receive praise at work or school and graciously accept it but privately thank me for my goodness. I love you and want to bless you.
An unhealthy relationship is never satisfying. I will still be with you, but I don’t want you to resist me or ignore me. Look to me and follow me. You are blessed, and I don’t want you to forget all I’m doing in you. More so, I don’t want you to miss opportunities to love and serve others. You have a chance to impact eternity. I invite you to be part of that.
Pray through the verses in today’s key verse. Ask God to reveal ways you can actively do those things.
