🎧 My Favorite Bible Breakdown Episode>>>

My favorite episode this week: Deuteronomy 8.

We Tested More By Blessing Than Testing.

This chapter made me stop and think for a while. We expect to be tested with trouble, but many of us struggle with the test of blessing. I remember when my wife and I first married. We had nothing. Our choice of dinner options was which can of soup we wanted to eat that night. However, that was not as hard as seasons of blessing when it became more difficult than I thought it would be to remember who the Source of our Supply is. I pray that we enjoy God's blessings but never forget that it all flows from Him. The author of Proverbs prays to be in the middle between a lot and a little. He says if he has too little, he will despair. If he has too much, he may forget God. That prayer is still true today. We must be careful when we are blessed, just like when we feel we are not.

Let's read it together. >>> Listen to it here.

The more we dig, the more we find.
To get acquainted with the "Second Law," read a quick Introduction to The Book of Deuteronomy.
