what it boils down to
so in Deuteronomy 10:12, we see summed up the most important thing in life. seems pretty important, huh?
And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you?
how would you answer this?
the writer of Deuteronomy (some say Moses) wrote the answer... He requires only that you fear the Lord your God, and live in a way that pleases him, and love him and serve him with all your heart and soul.
there it is. the most important thing in life. fear God (which doesn't mean cower and shudder and live in fear... it means respect him and make him God of your life), live in a way that pleases him, love him and serve him with all of your heart and soul. if we do that, everything else will fall into place.
notice the word "only". i think that's significant. it's pretty much saying "this is it. do this, and you're in good shape."
God, please help me do this.
