Time: 9:30 AM

Weather: HOT and beautiful

Readings: Deuteronomy, chapters 10-14

Noteworthy Verse:

“Place these words on your hearts.  Get them deep inside you.  Tie them to your hands and foreheads as a reminder.  Teach them to your children.  Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning until you fall into bed at night.  Inscribe them on the doorposts and gates of your cities so that you’ll live a long time, and your children with you, on the soil that God promised to give your ancestors for as long as their is a sky over the Earth.”

Deuteronomy 11:18-21

Significance:

  • This verse was spoken by Moses when he was giving his final sermon to the Israelites before they were delivered into the land of milk and honey.  The “words” that he is referring to are the 10 commandments.
  • This passage is a reminder of how important it is to stay focused on God’s word and your goals in general.  If you want to be a committed soldier for Christ you need to live and breath his word, you need to think about it and talk about it all day long.
  • It also highlights how far our modern culture is coming away from this command.  Public schools are removing the 10 commandments from their walls and actively trying to ban prayer.  It’s troubling to think about what our society will morph into without God being present in everyday life.

Feelings:
Today I am feeling great.  I’m looking forward to getting some work done, soaking up some sun, and catching up with a friend over coffee.  God is good!
