Command: vs 1 You SHALL therefore love the Lord your God, and always keep his charge, his statues, His ordinances, and His commandments. vs. 9 SO that you may prolong your days on the land which the Lord swore to your fathers to give to them and to their descendants, a land flowing with milk and honey."
What should we teach our children:
vs. 18-21 "You shall therefore impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul; and you shall bind them as sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. You shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your sons may be multiplied on the land which the Lord swore to your fathers to give them, as long as the heavens remain above the earth."
We have heard this once before early in Deut. 6, I'm interested how many more times Moses said this to the people.
Vs. 26-29 "See I am seeing before you today a blessing and a curse: he blessing, if you listen to the commandments of the Lord your God, which I am commanding you today; If you do not listen to the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside from the way which I am commanding you today, by following other gods which you have not known. It shall come about, when the Lord your God brings you into the land where you are entering to possess it, that you shall place the blessing mount gerizim and the curse on Mount Ebal."
There are blessings when we follow and do what God has asked us to do, there are curses and consequences when we do not. Consequences that are self inflicted because of my rebellion not to listen to him.
