Never forget how you aroused the anger of the Lord your God in the wilderness. Deuteronomy 9:7
Deuteronomy is a series of sermons preached by Moses to God’s people (or one really long sermon) just before they were to enter the Promised Land. It was his farewell address because he knew that God would not let him enter that land because of his own sins against God. He must have spoken with great passion, not wanting the people to make the same mistakes he had made. One recurring theme was for them to remember their sins against God and God’s goodness to them. That is still good advice today. I am blessed beyond measure despite the many ways I have offended him. That thought drives me to my knees as I begin another day. Dear God, may my life bring honor to you today. AMEN.
