Are we carefully observing all His commandments? Just as these Olympians carefully listed to their coach we need to listen to what the Word of God says to us today. These accomplished athletes, competing at the highest international venue have dedicated their very lives to their cause. Their discipline to embrace those things that benefit the cause and avoid those things that are a distraction was the reason for their success. They have been blessed but their blessing was conditional upon their observing the voice and the words of their coach.
What will it take for us to be blessed? When will be be careful to observe all that He commands so that the blessings of God literally overtake us? Then we will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.
