Today you should read: Deuteronomy 33:1-29

There are several websites out there that will predict the day that one will die in exchange for information about yourself (and for at least one website, a small fee as well). I remember reading about them several years ago and thinking: 1. I would hate to know exactly when I would die. 2. What would I do and say right before my death?

Well, Moses didn’t have to think about this but instead experienced it himself. He was just foretold by God his death in the last chapter and we get to read his final words to his people before that death. What type of legacy speech does Moses share?

  • He shared of God’s great power & love (v. 2-3a)
  • He showed how God was sovereign & guiding them as a nation & His people (v. 3b-5)
  • He gave each tribe specific commands & reminders from the Lord (v. 6-28)
  • He ends with a prelude to the Gospel, reminding them of the joy we receive in our salvation & God’s victory over Satan & evil (v. 29)

What would your legacy speech be to your friends, family, and church?
