God's messages are for all people in all ages. The admonitions of Moses are just as applicable and as binding today as in his day. The great Hebrew lawgiver was commanded of God to teach the children of Israel to have one God and to love Him with all their heart, and soul, and mind. And they were to teach their children that God is one God. They were to talk about God's commandments in their homes and by the way, morning and night. The words that God commanded Moses to teach them were to be bound for a sign upon their hands, and should be as frontlets between their eyes, and written upon the doorposts and the gates.
These exhortations may be taken as meaning that the people should be very careful to preserve the remembrance of God's law, and observe His commands; that they should always have the commands in remembrance. If they would obey God's commandments, Moses assured them, all their needs would be supplied.
Today we have the mighty truths in the Old and New Testaments, and in the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, to remind us of the omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience of God, and the perfection of man as God's own likeness. Obedience to the truth regarding God and man brings healing, and men find through it that Love supplies all human needs throughout the ages.
