Blessings and Curses - Day 15

Deuteronomy 32:12 - Deuteronomy 34:12

          In today's reading the Lord is giving them a final warning. He tells them how he will bless them when they follow him and then all the ways he is going to curse them if they do not follow him.

          Even so, there will be those who will do wrong and think that every thing is fine.

"And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination of mine heart, to add drunkenness to thirst:" Deut. 29:19

God wants us to follow him completely.

"If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul." Deut. 30:10

          Is it pride that makes us disregard God's laws and then we think everything will work out for good?

          I have learned that all of God's words are important. The little rules ones and the big rules. By keeping my mind on the things of God I will be more aware when I start to stray away from his Word.
