With All You've Got (Day 14)

This is the commandment, the rules and regulations,  
that God, your God, commanded me to teach you to live 
 out in the land you’re about to cross into to possess. 
This is so that you’ll live in deep reverence before God lifelong
observing all his rules and regulations that I’m commanding you,
 you and your children and your grandchildren, living good long lives.
Listen obediently, Israel.  
Do what you’re told so that you’ll have a good life, 
a life of abundance and bounty, just as God promised, 
 in a land abounding in milk and honey.
Attention, Israel!
Love God, your God, with your whole heart: love him with all that’s in you, love him with all you’ve got!
Write these commandments that I’ve given you today on your hearts. 
Get them inside of you and then get them inside your children.  
Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; 
talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night. Tie them on your hands and foreheads as a reminder; 
inscribe them on the doorposts of your homes and on your city gates.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9  
The Message

For 31 days I am writing to my children
 my future grandchildren, great, and all my great-grandchildren.
