WALKING WITH GOD #10 Deuteronomy 11
There are two ways leading to blessing and curse people would walk. The blessing comes when people keep God’s commandments, and the curse strikes when they do not heed His commandments.
Turning away from His commandments leads to serving other gods. It violates the first commandment of 10, which Moses has given from God on Mt. Sinai. Bible says, “You shall have no other gods before me” (NIV, Exodus 20:3).
Contrary, the blessing is introduced in possessing the land God has promised. Not only own the land but also, inheritors dwell in that land. The gift of land is not abstract but visible and touchable.
I think of this land as the actual land promised to the people of Israel and as the eternal heaven for all believers spiritually.
