riches that please God

Deuteronomy 30:7-10 (JDV)

Deuteronomy 30:7 Yahveh your God will put all these oaths on your enemies who hate and persecute you.
Deuteronomy 30:8 Then you will again obey Yahveh and follow all his commands I am commanding you today.
Deuteronomy 30:9 Yahveh your God will make your prosperity survive in all the work of your hands, your offspring, the offspring of your livestock, and the produce of your land. Indeed, Yahveh will again delight in your prosperity, as he delighted in that of your fathers,
Deuteronomy 30:10 when you obey Yahveh your God by watching his commands and prescriptions that are written in this book of the instruction and return to him with all your heart and all your throat.

riches that please God

The Israelites learned that there were hundreds of ways to become prosperous, but there was only one way to make their prosperity survive. Returning to the covenant and obeying the commands of their rescuer was the only way to be both prosperous and secure.

This lesson reverberates throughout the scriptures. Prosperity gained by being disobedient does not last. The riches that last are the kind of riches that please God. Those are the kind that he gives to those who follow his commands.

Thank you Lord, for blessing our obedience. Give us the good sense to always seek your blessing, not just temporary prosperity.
