“Walk in obedience to all that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.” (Deuteronomy 5:33, NIV)
The benefits of obedience to God are clearly set-forth by Moses in today’s scripture.
Writing to the Children of Israel, the benefits noted are: Life, prosperity, and longevity in a good place. Most people find these benefits desirable, but one cannot truly apprehend them by following a “trial and error” method to living based on our own limited experience and point of view. God’s word provides us with the blueprint for life, prosperity, and longevity in a good place.
Obedience to God’s word delivers to us these benefits — and a personal relationship with our heavenly Father. – Luther
