* * * That You May Live * * *
The people of Israel are about to move into the land that was promised. They had been wandering in the wilderness for a long time, but a new beginning was in sight. God is preparing them for new life in this new place. All of God’s statutes and ordinances were not to constrain the people, rather they were intended to provide discipline. Discipline has gotten a bad name in contemporary culture. Discipline is not punishment. Disciple and discipline are in the same family. We discipline our eating and exercise so that our bodies are healthy. What do we need to discipline in this community of faith so that we might live? What do we need to honor and practice that will sustain us and keep us strong as we moven into a new day? God is leading us into a new land and mission. Now is the time to discipline ourselves so that we may live.
(Commentary based on the text of Deuteronomy 4:1-2, 6-9.)
