Did you look like one parent or another when you were first born? Never mind… eventually you will just look like the decisions you made, whether good or bad.
Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach.
It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?”
Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?”
No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.
See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.
For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; (Deuteronomy 30:11-16, NIV)
May our free will never become our free won’t.
Prayer – Father God, we stumble from here to there and back again. Help us stumble in the right direction. Amen!
