Deuteronomy 6-34 | May 16-22
Moses knew he wouldn’t be around much longer, so he gathered his people to teach them. He reminded them to love the Lord their God. Moses didn’t want the people to forget all of the great things the Lord had done for them. They had been freed from slavery, saved from the Egyptians, fed manna in the wilderness, and they had seen many other miracles. Moses told the people to teach all these things to their children and never forget to love the Lord with all their hearts.
Many of the things Moses had taught and written were quoted by Jesus Christ when He was on the earth. Some of these scriptures helped the Savior when he was being tempted by Satan. The teachings of Moses and other prophets can help and inspire us today.
