“This is the command — the statutes and ordinances — the Lord your God has instructed me to teach you, so that you may follow them in the land you are about to enter and possess. Do this so that you may fear the Lord your God all the days of your life by keeping all His statutes and commands I am giving you, your son, and your grandson, and so that you may have a long life.”
Deuteronomy 6:1-2 HCSB
Parents who train their children to obey rules lest the reap consequences give their children the gift of learning a healthy respect for those persons to whine they are accountable.
God gave to Moses (to share with the Israelites) the Ten Commandments and other specific instructions for use in everyday life while Moses was on Mount Horeb. The Lord tells him that through obedience to these instructions the people would learn to fear God, to have a reverential awe and deep respect for who He is. Once in the land of Canaan there were those who were devout in their faith who did follow the statutes and ordinances. These people did fear God. The “fear” came through the process of growing in obedience to God, learning to cultivate an attitude of loving obedience with an understanding that God cared about their long-term well-being. Others followed the letter of the law without any real understanding of who He is. Still others did not listen and rejected the Word of the Lord.
Have YOU cultivated a heart attitude of love and obedience?🚦
