Deuteronomy 11:26-28 – See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse
Posted: 03 Jun 2012 09:15 PM PDT
See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse — the blessing if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today; the curse if you disobey the commands of the Lord your God and turn from the way that I command you today by following other gods, which you have not known.
– Deuteronomy 11:26-28 (NIV)

God is not withholding any of his blessings from us—we choose whether to enter into His blessing or His curse each day. As beings made in God’s image, we have been given the privilege of deciding how we will approach life. But with that privilege comes responsibility, for we can also turn from God and follow our own ways. Don’t follow after the god of career, family, or worldly success. God is setting his blessing or curse before us today.
