A Review of Deuteronomy

The whole book of Deuteronomy seems to be a prep course for the Israelites as they ready to enter the promised land of Canaan.  How to summarize the book?  I think this passage does it:

“See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.  For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.”Deuteronomy 30:15-16

That pretty much gives a short overview of the book, and a great reminder for God’s people – then and now.  We have two choices, life or death.  If we choose life, then we should be prepared to walk in God’s ways and obey His commands.  This is exactly consistent with the New Testament model, as well (see Romans 5 and 6).  I think this verse would be just fine to hang in the family home today.
