God’s blessing to us is His everlasting love that nurtures, extends a hand, and leads us to where we need to go. As Billy Graham once said, “I have good news! God knows you and takes active concern in your life. God thinks you are so bright and special that Christ was sent to die for you”.
Within Deuteronomy 31:30-32:25 is a song written by Moses. Love and justice are related in this song. It is a reflection of the total meaning of Deuteronomy. Metaphors are used within the song. Examples include the following:
- God’s Word falls like rain to provide what is needed for abundant life
- God is like a rock providing a firm foundation of solid principles we can use throughout time.
His people are blessed when they praise Him but when the people worship idols, there are all kinds of calamities. In many ways, the response of the people during the time of Moses is similar to the response today when many resist God’s love, close up, or do not accept the blessings He wants to give.
A society can avoid rejecting God for the future by being mindful of the mistakes of the past and seeking to learn the lessons in order to be blessed for the future. To accept God’s love, learn from each other, and share the lessons learned is a response to God’s love in a positive way.
This day with You God, we accept Your everlasting love that nurtures, extends a hand, and keeps us going in the direction we need to go. You love us so much that You sent Jesus to die for us. We are lifted to new heights in the present because of Your everlasting love that promises an amazing future. Amen.
