Leviticus 25-26

Daily Devotional from Leviticus 26—

Verses 3-4
If you walk in my statutes and observe my commandments and do them, then I will give you your rains in their season, and the land shall yield its increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.

Verses 1-13 list the blessings of obeying God, while 14-39 pronounce curses for disobedience. We’re in the middle of the five books of the LAW and there are a LOT of LAWS. Laws we can’t possibly keep – Israelites had to offer sacrifices to cover any laws they may have unknowingly broken! So it’s no surprise that Jesus was asked, “Which is the greatest commandment in the law?” He boiled all the law and the prophecies down to two: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind and love your neighbor as yourself.”

That is the standard we should judge every thought, motive, word, and deed by: “Am I loving God more than anything else right now?” “Am I caring for my neighbor as well as myself right now?” Make choices that will honor God and bring the blessings of obedience to your life.
