To read the Bible in a year, read Deuteronomy 28 on March 16, In the year of our Lord 2018

By Don Ruhl

The Lord made Himself clear to Israel that if they did not obey His voice, they would suffer for it, including in these ways,

“And you shall grope at noonday, as a blind man gropes in darkness; you shall not prosper in your ways; you shall be only oppressed and plundered continually, and no one shall save you. You shall betroth a wife, but another man shall lie with her; you shall build a house, but you shall not dwell in it; you shall plant a vineyard, but shall not gather its grapes. Your ox shall be slaughtered before your eyes, but you shall not eat of it; your donkey shall be violently taken away from before you, and shall not be restored to you; your sheep shall be given to your enemies, and you shall have no one to rescue them. Your sons and your daughters shall be given to another people, and your eyes shall look and fail with longing for them all day long; and there shall be no strength in your hand” (Deuteronomy 28.29–32).

The nation would suffer, but so would families. Israel could not get away with disobeying the Creator, nor can we. Eventually Israel had to be called to account for their behavior just as we will.
