Deuteronomy 9:1 - 11:32

9:6 "for you are a stiff-necked people"   ...  hmmm... Israelites or us today????

10:12-13 "And now, O Israel, what does the LORD your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to observe the LORD's commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good?"

(brings to mind a praise and worship song we'd sing in college ... lyrics were simply "Love the Lord your God with all  your heart and all your soul and all your might and all your strength.")

10:19 "And you are to love those who are aliens, for you yourselves were aliens ..."
So often we don't take care of the 'aliens' - anyone who doesn't belong - anyone.

10:22 "He is your praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes."

11:32 " be sure that you obey all the decrees and laws I am setting before you today."

God keeps repeating this. And do they listen???
