The Lord your God will be watching to find out whether or not you love him with all your heart and soul.You must be completely faithful to the Lord. Worship and obey only the Lord and do this with fear and trembling,because he rescued you from slavery....
Deuteronomy 13:3-5 CEV
Why do we allow ourselves to be enslaved by people or things? God just wants us to love Him with our whole lives, not just a designated piece.
(There are paragraphs I could write about this chapter. It troubles me and I find it difficult to understand. Read it and see what you think.)
