Deuteronomy 6 is a picture of what godly living looks like. Love God and obey his commands. When we love God with our all, everything else naturally flows from it. Our obedience, growth, discipleship, evangelism, and generosity all stem from this love.
These chapters emphasize obedience to God and his Word if Israel is to maintain their blessing and the Lord’s favor in the Promised Land. They must respect God, follow his commands, and not give in to the idolatry of those around them. He specifically talks about idols, because he knows this and the people of the land will be a snare for them.
Today, Jesus Christ enables us to live in such righteousness.
