Verse of the Day (March 5, 2020) #BMSeminary – [You shall love the Lord your God] First in the list of all that was essential for the Jew was unreserved, wholehearted commitment expressed in love to God. Since this relationship of love for God could not be represented in any material way as with idols, it had to be demonstrated in obedience to God’s law in daily life. Cf. 11:16–21; Matt. 22:37; Luke 10:27. [these words . . . on your heart] The people were to think about these commandments and meditate on them so that obedience would not be a matter of formal legalism, but a response based upon understanding. The law written upon the heart would be an essential characteristic of the later New Covenant (see Jer. 31:33). [teach them diligently to your children] The commandments were to be the subject of conversation, both inside and outside the home, from the beginning of the day to its end. (MacArthur Study Bible)
