No Trifling Matter

February 6, 2011



When Moses had finished reciting all these words to all Israel, 46 he said to them: “Take to heart all the words that I am giving in witness against you today; give them as a command to your children, so that they may diligently observe all the words of this law. 47 This is no trifling matter for you, but rather your very life; through it you may live long in the land that you are crossing over the Jordan to possess.” [The Holy Bible : New Revised Standard Version. 1989 (Dt 32:45-47). Nashville: Thomas Nelson Publishers].
The Word of God is not a trifle; it is a matter of life and death. If you treat the Scripture as a trifle, you forfeit life.”
John Piper, Desiring God (1st ed.), 119.
