heads or tails?

Deuteronomy 28:13-14 (JDV)

Deuteronomy 28:13 Yahveh will make you the head and not the tail; you will only move upward and never downward if you listen to Yahveh your God’s commands I am commanding you today and are careful to follow them.
Deuteronomy 28:14 Do not turn aside to the right or the left from all the things I am commanding you today, and do not follow other gods to worship them.

heads or tails?

The Israelites had a simple choice. God had offered them a covenant with himself, deliverance from their bondage, and a life to live that was superior to the lives lived by everyone else on the planet. Would they choose to be heads and not tails? It meant being faithful to that covenant by following the commands associated with it, and it meant being loyal to God alone and refusing to follow the other gods the pagans were so fond of. But that was really not a hard choice to make. Nobody in their right mind would want to move downward. Downward is the wrong way.

Lord, you have offered us a WAY to be heads and not tails. Through the covenant with your SON, Jesus Christ. That is the WAY we want to walk. Make us wise and strong so that we stay faithful to you.
