"And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you? He requires only that you fear the LORD your God, and live in a way that pleases him, and love him and serve him with all your heart and soul. And you must always obey the LORD's commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good."

Deuteronomy 10:12-13
I had this verse come up in one of the Daily On Line Apps I subscribe to. When I first read it my sarcastic tired brain said "Is that ALL, really? Just ALWAYS fear God, ALWAYS obey, ALWAYS love, ALWAYS serve."  He ONLY requires ALL of these things.

Then I remembered I am not a immature 14 year old who just got a lecture from my parents. I am a women saved from an unspeakable darkness and a painful eternity.  I am a child of God given the gift of grace during my first breath of Christianity.  A grace that will never be taken back.  A mercy that could never be earned.

God's word says to weigh the consequences of your commitment.  The weight of my commitment is to receive  ALL of the greatest, most sacrificial gift and to give ALL ... What I must do is,  ONLY love, ONLY obey,  AlWAYS fear, to ONLY serve Him.

ALL this Only and ALWAYS seems so light and easy to bear.

God never said you had to be the most beautiful, the one with the cleanest home, the most money, the one with the most well behaved children, the one most agreed with on Facebook or even the most well liked.

He says to obey,fear, love and serve and it will be good for your entire life.
