9 Understand, therefore, that the LORD your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps his covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes his unfailing love on those who love him and obey his commands.
We want to be loved and love but few focus on obey part of the promise. We want to do our own thing. Be our own person. The Lord says we are to love Him and obey His commands. This is critical for our personal spiritual growth and for the Lord to use us. Love God and obey Him.
