Be quiet and pay attention: Deuteronomy 27.9 VOTD

“Then Moses and the Levitical priests spoke to all Israel: “Be quiet and pay attention, Israel. Today you have become the people of the Lord your God.”

Deuteronomy 27.9

Before crossing over the Jordan River to take possession of the promised land, Israel renewed their covenant with God. It required their full attention. Being God’s people meant listening to the Lord.

How do Christians renew their commitment to the Lord’s covenant in Christ? How do you renew your faithful dedication to God?

Sensible words to pay attention

On yesterday’s Nudge about the most sensible thing heard lately. Would be from our good brother Alexandre, visiting our home this weekend, who also preached for us in SJCampos and Taubate. He alerted us all to “pay attention to life, to God, to yourself.” His vigorous exhortation came as a bracing reminder of our holy walk in the Lord. I was blessed, because I got to hear it twice!
