Are hearing and listening the same thing? In this video, discover how sound entering your ear-drums isn’t synonymous with “listening,” at least from a biblical perspective. This video is the first one in our Word Studies series, a six-part exploration of the ancient biblical prayer called “The Shema.”
Today, our reading comes from Deuteronomy 4-6 God gives the Israelites instructions, a reminder of who He is, and who they belong to.

During today’s reading, I kept putting myself in Moses’s shoes. He is VERY old at this point and has been leading the Israelites for decades. He knew that his time was coming to an end, and that this would be his last chance to make sure that the story of the Israelites and the commands from God were passed down.
Was he energized by this? Was he tired? Was he proud of the work that he had done to get them there, or was he sad knowing that he messed up and wasn’t going to be allowed to enter the promised land?
What do you think?
