Higher Standard – Deuteronomy 17:18

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Deuteronomy 17:18
When he takes the throne of his kingdom, he is to write for himself on a scroll a copy of this law, taken from that of the priests, who are Levites.

This is a command that is given for every new king that is to rule in Israel. I want to read the verses that follow, but before I do, I ask that you consider them in the perspective of what the Father has placed you as king over.

Verse 19 “It is to be with him, and he is to read it all the days of his life so that he may learn to revere YHWH his God and follow carefully all the words of this law and these decrees 20 and not consider himself better than his brothers and turn from the law to the right or to the left. Then he and his descendants will reign a long time over his kingdom in Israel.”

The Father has placed all of us over something in our life. What if we took that calling as seriously as given to the kings?

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!
