Commandments – Day 14

Deuteronomy 6:6

These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.

The Thought

A simple command from The Lord in a different book of our Bibles, which is also credited to Moses as the writer. Much of Deuteronomy compliments the book of Exodus. It is generally believed, particularly among traditional Jews, that God dictated the Pentateuch to Moses. This name, Pentateuch just means five volumes, and refers to the first five books of our Bible known in Judaism as the Torah.

We can discuss different ideas about who wrote the Bible and when, but the important thing is that it tells us the truth about Almighty God, and His plan for mankind. It gives us important guidelines for living our lives in this difficult world that we find ourselves in today.

That is why the verse for today continues with a bit more detail, letting us know the importance of God’s commands. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home, and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands, and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates (Deuteronomy 6:7-9).

That is certainly a challenge for many families and individuals today! Many of us wear crosses around our necks, on our lapels, or in our ears. But how many of us talk to people we walk with, work with, or sleep with, about the commandments of God?


Challenge yourself today to talk more about Jesus to others. Ask His forgiveness where you have not done what He asked.

Read Deuteronomy 6 and get a slightly different version of the commandments. Praise God that He never changes His mind. The orders He gave centuries ago are still relevant today.
