“You’d better watch out..” not because Santa Claus is coming to town but because the devil (who is real!) is digging a pit for your feet. Today’s devotional warns you about one such pit. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Deuteronomy 6:3 (ESV)
Hear therefore, O Israel, and be careful to do them, that it may go well with you, and that you may multiply greatly, as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has promised you, in a land flowing with milk and honey.
“There was always a danger that the new generation would become proud and think that God had blessed them because they were better than previous generations. Moses reminded them that all their blessings came from the Lord because of His covenant with their fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob….
“Believers today need to be reminded that all our blessings come to us because of God’s eternal covenant with His Son (Heb. 13:20) and the New Covenant which Jesus made through His sacrificial death on the cross (Luke 22:20; 1 Cor. 11:25; Heb. 8-9).”” [Warren W. Wiersbe, The Bible Exposition Commentary I, (Colorado Springs, CO: Victor, 2001), p. 388]
