In Deuteronomy 5, the Ten Commandments are restated for Israel. Many feel the commandments are burdensome and may even resent them - though they keep them in a desire to appear good. God, however, sees the heart and desires his people to love him as he states in Deuteronomy 6:4. Obedience is meant to flow from love. The commandments of God give shape and form to a relationship of love. He has shown his love by redeeming a people for himself. Now we love him in return. Our love for the Lord is a matter of delight and will.
