un-pack that ...

For those who sometimes wonder how relevant the Old Testament is:

Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone! Therefore, you shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength. Take to heart these words which I enjoin on you today. Drill them into your children. Speak of them at home and abroad, whether you are busy or at rest.

Deuteronomy 6:4-7

Work your way through those words slowly ... meditate on them ... I'm going to pick out a few phrases ... read them ... close your eyes and reflect on them  ... dim the lights, light a candle and spend a few minutes on each ...

1. The Lord is our God, the Lord alone

2. you shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart

3.you shall love the Lord, your God, with all your soul

4. you shall love the Lord, your God, with all your strength

5. Take to heart these words

6. Drill them into your children

7. Speak of them at home and abroad

8. Speak of them whether you are busy or at rest

Still have any doubts as to the relevance of the Old Testament?
