Not a Threat

However, if you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come on you and overtake you. Deuteronomy 28:15

As wonderful as it is to know God’s blessings, one would be foolish not to consider his curses. Both are laid out in this chapter. As the result of obedience is blessing, so is the consequence of disobedience to be cursed. And the strange thing is the curses come on you because God loves you. God does not threaten with curses, he simply warns that they come with disobedience. But don’t think of them as punishment; look at the curses as God’s effort to draw one back into his loving arms. Remember that God is quick to forgive. All it takes is for one to desire to turn one’s life around and ask forgiveness. As good as it is to begin the day with praise, it is important for each of us to begin the day with repentance. It is like brushing one’s teeth.
