We live in a busy world with busy schedules and being able to share some thoughts about this journey with others across this world through the Internet is truly a blessing. The below Questions for Reflection will stimulate thought and offer ideas for applying biblical principles at work, at home, and in all we do.
Deuteronomy 30 – What is the difference between life and death as promised in today’s chapter? What brings a good life as promised in today’s chapter? How can we take hold of fresh beginnings that God promises? What brings death and destruction?
Deuteronomy 31:1-29 – What is Moses’ most pressing concerns before his death? Who would take over as leader? Why, do you think, is the law read every seven years?
Deuteronomy 31:30-32:25 – In what ways is this song a reflection of the total meaning of Deuteronomy? How did the people respond to God’s love? How can we avoid similar folly today? What are some ideas for responding to God’s love in a positive way?
Deuteronomy 32:26-52 – For what reason does God limit the power of the foolish nation over Israel? For what reasons will God preserve a remnant of Israel? What is the basis of your hope of preservation? Why, do you think, does God emphasize the reason Moses cannot go into the Promised Land?
Deuteronomy 33 – What is the similarities or differences between the Lord’s appearing with a sunrise in Sinai? In what ways is God unique? In what ways does your assurance of your relationship with God affect the attitudes and actions of your daily living?
