Day 296 - Deuteronomy 17

V. 1-13 We cannot separate our religious life from the ordinary things of life. If we are wrong in the first, the other will not be properly regulated. Notice what would happen if they disobeyed...they would be put to death!
V. 14-20 Even if they had a king, they were warned that this would bring many troubles. Sure enough, their great king Solomon was guilty of these very things. The result of this was the break-up of the kingdom and every person in those divided kingdoms had his every-day life very much affected.
