Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 6:8


6:8 Thou shalt bind them - Thou shalt give all diligence, and use all means to keep them in thy remembrance, as men often bind something upon their hands, or put it before their eyes to prevent forgetfulness of a thing which they much desire to remember.

    Love this I love that you love God and the part about thou shalt meaning you ought to that's great you're helping people right there. There ar so many misconceptions on Jesus being harsh or strict! It's so not like or about that. Than you so much
  • When one addressed Jesus Christ as "Good Master" Mt.19:16 Jesus answered him and said, "Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God." Jesus refuses to be called "Good" because, as he clearly states, only "one" is good, that is, God.

    I believe the scripture means that God will take care of you if you put your trust in Him.

    How can we possibly not love Him? He gave His Life for me and He is always there when I'm overcome by dark emotions thoughts like 4 this morning. Tnk you my Lord for being there - I do love you so much. I know that I will never be able to love You the same way You love me - but You know my heart and I do love You

    Could it be possible, if all things are possible with GOD, that there was only one Jesus Christ, the King, that walked the Earth? The many continents too? Something to think about in awe, if you ask me. Through the Lord, Jesus Christ, with GOD All things are possible. Humility, weakness, mercy, grace, the truth...love and kindness,...true strength becomes one....The entire universe too...???
