“See, I am setting before you today a blessing & a curse – the blessing if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today; the curse if you disobey the commands of the Lord your God & turn from the way that I command you today by following other gods, which you have not known.” Deut 11:26-28
God gave the people of Israel, right from the start, a choice between a blessing or curse. We have the same choice today; God’s way or ours.
Sadly we see, that overtime, most of them, through their disobedience, chose the curse.
“Fix these words of mine in your hearts & minds; tie them as symbols on your hands & bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home & when you walk along the road, when you lie down & when you get up. Write them on the doorframe so of your houses & on your gates” Deut 11:18-20
