“And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God …” (v12). Walking in God’s ways means paying attention to God’s heart and doing likewise. Moses reminded the Israelites: “He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner [stranger/foreigner], giving him food and clothing. Love the sojourner, therefore …” (v18-19).
“You shall serve Him and hold fast to Him” (v20). God’s Spirit uses the Bible to teach us about God’s heart and His ways, so that we can love Him, serve Him, and follow Him better.
