DAY 345: JOURNEY THROGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
As we continue our journey through the final book of law, Deuteronomy, Moses continues to remind the Israelites of how they are to behave in the Promised Land.
Before reading Deuteronomy 26-28, pray for understanding of today’s reading. Read Deuteronomy 26-28. Let’s journey!
Deuteronomy is the fifth and final book of the Jewish Torah and concludes the Books of Moses in the Christian Old Testament. As with the previous four, Moses wrote this book, which retells many of the events recorded in the previous books. Its purpose is the help guide the new generation that was preparing to enter the Promised Land. It is a reminder to the new generation to remain faithful to the covenant made between the Israelites and God.
Deuteronomy 26-28: In today’s reading, Moses gives instructions for how to honor the Lord through first fruits of the crops and tithes. These serve as reminders for all that the Lord has done for the Israelites. Moses reiterates that the Israelites must keep the commands of the Lord. He warns what will happen if they do not and tells what will happen if they do. (Deuteronomy 26:1-28:68)
After you finish today’s reading, take some time and consider the following: Why would Moses recount this part of the Israelite’s journey? What can be learned from it? Stop and reflect upon your personal journey. What lessons have you learned? What lessons do you need to remember?
