Sunday Devotional: Deuteronomy 6:4-9

“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 gates.”  (Deuteronomy 6:4-9)

In these verses, Moses is sharing with the Israelites before they go into the Promised Land.  He is teaching them and reminding them about all they need to know before they enter into the land that God had promised.  One of the big things that Moses wanted the Israelites to remember was who God is and all that God had done for them.

Moses wanted the people to learn this truth and to pass it on to their children and their grandchildren.  He wanted them to remember and to share.  They were to love God with all their heart soul and strength.  And as they were going into the promised land, to remember that God was with them and that He was the reason they were going there.

This week, let us remember who God is.  Let us love God with all our hearts and souls and strength.  And let us share with others about God.  He loves us so much and has given us so much.  Let us share that with others this week.
