The contrast between God’s people and those who worship false gods is so strong. It would be easy for God’s people to feel superior. God’s Word gives us no encouragement to have a superiority complex (Deuteronomy 7:7-8). How are God’s people to remain true to Him when there are so many pressures to conform to the world? – We must remember that we need the Word of the Lord (Deuteronomy 8:3). Without His Word, we will be easy victims for Satan. The Lord warns His people – We must remember to obey Him, or we will, by our disobedience, bring ourselves under His judgment (Deuteronomy 8:19-20).
