Deuteronomy 28:9-10 The Lord your God will make you abound in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your land for good. For the Lord will again rejoice over you for good as He rejoiced over your fathers, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which are written in this Book of the Law, and if you turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
As I was thinking of all the blessings of this book of instructions, I realized that most all books of instructions start out with a list of parts of whatever it is the instructions are for. This bible is not any different; it starts out in Genesis One with a list of all the parts that the instructions pertain to. In other words, this book relates to everything in Creation that we can see and beyond.
As I look around, it appears that there are an awful lot of people that have taken no heed whatsoever of the instructions and are in great need to read them because all else in absolutely failing. I can only just imagine all the curses, disease and sickness of all kinds that would disappear from our existence if we would only listen to the Creator. Love your neighbor as you love yourself would absolutely eliminate greed and the lust for power let alone all the other degradation that go along with them. I speak to myself as well.
