“For I know that after my death you will surely act corruptly, turning aside from the way that I have commanded you. In time to come trouble will fall you, because you will do what is evil in the sight of the Lord, provoking him to anger through the work of your hands.” (Deuteronomy 31: 29)
From Israel’s HeyDey with Saul and David to the fall of Jerusalem in 586 BCE, the story of Israel hinges on how well they follow the way of God. Could this perhaps be a parallel of the dangers all nations face when they do not stick to the statutes that make them great? Today we look more deeply into God’s ways for God’s people.
