Deuteronomy Resources {Week 6}

Welcome

Welcome back to Deuteronomy! This week we are going to see how the Israelites are given a choice whether they wish to follow God or not. We, too, are given a choice, every moment of every day. Will we turn toward God, his commands, and his holy will? Or will we turn to sin and death? The truth is, sometimes we say yes to God and sometimes we say yes to evil. But the goals should always be to say yes.

This post is all about the sixth week of Deuteronomy. Here you will find our reading plan and memory verse. My APPLY for the week will be about accepting God. I will post it on Wednesday, so be sure to subscribe to the blog!

Fairness

As corporations have grown into international conglomerates that are too big to fail, they have forgotten about the humanity of their employees. As a millennial, I remember the Great Recession of 2008. I hold Wall Street responsible for my friends parents losing their jobs and homes. Publicly traded companies have a fiduciary responsibility to their shareholders to maximize profits. It’s not to respect the human dignity of employees or making products affordable. The job is to make money, not to be moral. 

So when our government throws these immoral and selfish people a bone in the form of a massive tax cut, you see companies doing more stock buybacks than you see raises. By he way, raises are different than one time bonuses. A raise means you can afford a house in a safer neighborhood or a more reliable car. A bonus is a vacation. It’s grand, but not life changing. 

The faceless figures of Wall Street and Fortune 500 companies don’t care about their people, they don’t care if their employees cry to the Lord against them, they don’t care if they’re held guilty, they don’t care about God.

Welcome back to Deuteronomy, my friends. How’s it going so far? We are over half way done with this book and it’s been a treat, I think. It has been so nice to recall all the blessings of God on the Israelites, and to be challenged to remember God’s blessings upon us everyday.

Hold to the Scriptures

God stands above all, even kings and rulers of nations must bow to his glory and majesty. No one is above the law, not even a king or ruler. I am of the belief that those who want power probably don’t deserve it, and those who don’t want power, are the very ones who ought to have it. There are many qualities that make for good leadership, and I think one of the most important ones is humility. 

We need leaders who are law abiding citizens, as someone from Illinois, we don’t really know what that looks like. How can officials expect us to follow the law when they don’t? Beyond that, a leader shouldn’t just follow the law, but set an example of morality and right conduct. I’m looking around at both the political and cultural leaders of our time and see a morality vacuum. How few people are working on caring for the poor, ensuring we leave the next generation better than ourselves, or simply preserving the sanctity of their own marriage bed? Is it too much to ask for Hollywood moguls and politicians to stop sleeping with women who aren’t their wives? 

If we only look at TV and the leaders of our communities, it’s very easy to become discouraged. But I look around in my everyday life of the people in my community who share the blessings of the Lord, who follow his law to the best of their abilities, and seek to build up strong families through deep rooted Christian values. So not all hope is lost.

Be Generous

Hurricane Harvey devastated Houston, Texas last year. I remember watching the coverage of people loading up children and necessities in blow up boats for the pool to seek shelter, then walked in mirky water up to the waist to get somewhere safe. I also remember seeing the civilians who had boats and strength making trips to rescue friends, family, and neighbors. The worst situations can bring out the best in humanity, but it can also reveal the worst in Christian hypocrisy. 

I was repulsed when I heard the televangelist, Joel Osteen, locked the doors of his megachurch, Lakewood, to those in need. What happened to the words of Jesus in Matthew 5 about caring for the homeless, sick, hungry, thirsty, and naked? Why did it take media backlash for him to do the virtuous thing? 

I’m not going to only give you one side. According to the church staff, the church had experienced some flooding also. Meaning, it would have been a dangerous to have people stay in the basketball stadium tuned Christian center. My follow up question to that rebuttal would be, did he open his home? Did the flood displace him and his family, or does his 17,000 square foot mansion have no space for a few of the Lord’s people?

Love the Lord

Yeah, that’s nice, but how? I don’t know about you, but this whole love thing is really difficult. We are living in a time when many of us really don’t know what love is. How can we possibly know how to love God with our whole heart, our whole being, and our whole strength when our divorce rate is so high, our children are being raised in single parent households, and there is perpetual strife in family life. The closest thing many of us knows to love is our pets. Is that what God means, should I love him like I love Puddles? 

I think it’s important to note that the deepest forms of love are simply the intimate exchange of persons. When it comes to us learning how to love God with our whole heart, whole being, and whole strength, it starts by coming to an understanding and acceptance of the fact that God loves us with his whole heart, his whole being, and his whole strength. Take a second on that and remember that God is infinite, unlike us. His whole heart, whole being, and whole strength is so much more expansive than we could ever understand. 

The more we recognize God’s unending love through the sacraments, through the scriptures, and just through his magnificent creation, we can learn to love him more fully. Be like a child that learns from mimicking. But don’t copy the fallen man, copy God’s example of true, deep, life altering love.

A Nation Set Apart

 

This passage makes me think about the immense power of the United States. Countries and peoples around the world know us and know what a powerful nation we are. When we go to battle, we do so with great force and determination. Our men and women in uniform are second to none, the best this world has to offer. I am grateful for the warriors who put their lives on the line for the freedoms we have in this country. But with great power comes great responsibility.  

I don’t want to just be known as the country with the best military, I want to be known as the country with the best education, the highest quality of life, the most respectful country in the world, the most environmentally friendly country. I want to be part of the best of the best, because those are the ideals our people go to battle for.

We each have a responsibility first to God, but also to our country. We must each do our part to make today a little better than yesterday, and tomorrow a little bit better than today. We have a duty to share the Lord’s blessings with others and to stand up in the face of dictatorships and autocracies. 

The people of the world shouldn’t just fear us because we have enough nuclear power to annihilate all living things on the planet. They should dread our presence in their countries because we will show their people kindness, respect, and love. We will nurture children, lift the poor out of poverty, and always strive for peace. 

I want to be part of a country that lives up to its ideals and doesn’t just talk about them.
