Deuteronomy 6 is the hub of this sermon that Moses is preaching to the people of Israel as they are about to enter into the promised land. Moses has proclaimed the greatest command as confirmed by Jesus. “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might” (6:5). All of the laws that God gave hung on this truth. God wants our hearts and commanded Israel to put God’s words to them in their hearts (6:6). God further declared that the purpose for these laws was for Israel’s good (6:2-3). All of God’s laws are for our good just as good parents give rules for the good of the children. So Moses declares the need for the people, if they desire to enter the promised land and enjoy the rest God is offering, to have God’s law in their hearts and love God with all their hearts. But how are we to get these words in our hearts? Moses gives a very important directive in verses 7-9.
