Deuteronomy 6:1-7New International Version (NIV)
Love the Lord Your God
6 These are the commands, decrees and laws the Lord your God directed me to teach you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, 2 so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the Lord your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life. 3 Hear, Israel, and be careful to obey so that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly in a land flowing with milk and honey, just as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, promised you.
4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
Dear Lord, I am learning through your Word. You teach me when I read your Word. When I read you Word, I want to be careful to obey. I love to read about your promises. I always want to love God with all my heart, with all my soul, and with all my strength. I want to be an example for my children and give sound, godly advice. Help me to walk with you daily, Lord. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
