    Verse 1: We should always love God and keep his commandments always. We must do so even when this may be difficult for us.

    Thank you Steve; as always, very important and pertinent Scriptures! "LAY UP THESE MY WORDS IN YOUR --- HEART --- AND IN YOUR SOUL AND BIND THEM FOR A SIGN UPON YOUR HAND THAT THEY MAY BE AS FRONTLETS BETWEEN YOUR EYES" We are utterly dependent upon the word of God in every conceivable aspect of our life. If we do not read it through, write it down, pray it in, and work it out; then we will fail!

    Obedience to God's Word. It's so very simple. Nothing to 'think' about. The Word of God is so very plain. Acts 2:37 - 38. " ..... what shall we do?" Then Peter's answer. Jesus said, in Matt. 6:33, preparing people for the day of Pentecost in Acts Ch. 2 - "Seek ye FIRST the Kingdom of God (salvation), and all these things shall be added unto you." the things of this life , food, raiment, shelter.

    I thought about it and I think that Israelities had more of a Blessing then a curse,yes they had to pay for their sins and follow the commandment to the T,but if you were not within the LORDS army or on his side you would perish with no chance of Salvation or Atonement,you just simply died,Israelities had a chance alot of the people did not have,so I see it as a BLESSING more then a CURSE,a GIFT..
