    Moses character was so amazing, he obeyed God words to the very end, I pray that as we study and read God's work that we may submit his words in our daily lives.

    Deuteronomy teaches us how to be blessed or cursed, how to have life or death, how to live according to the commandments, statues, and ordiances, of the Lord and live blessed all the days of our lives, we should be able to walk according to what God command us to avoid having to learn the same lessons the children of Israel had to learn, so we can avoid tempting God and being disobedience to God's will for our lives.
