Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the Lord is God in heaven above and on the earth below. There is no other. Keep his decrees and commands, which I am giving you today, so that it may go well with you and your children after you and that you may live long in the land the Lord your God gives you for all time.
There is purpose and responsibility to recognizing that the Lord is God, and there is no other. Obedience to God is necessary, SO THAT, “it may go well with you and your children after you”. The responsibility to all parents is to teach their children about who God is. The responsibility to all children is to learn this truth, and to not lose sight of it as they grow up and become parents. Today, this promise is in Christ Jesus alone. You cannot know God without faith in Jesus Christ. He is the only way to God, and in Him alone is it possible to live in obedience to God.
