God told Israel through Moses that He would bless them as His special possession if they would honor Him and follow His rules.
Today Christians are also God’s treasured possession because through Jesus we are part of the descendents of Abraham, to whom God told him also that he would be greatly blessed and have many descendants. But we must be careful to honor God with our words and actions and help others realize the love of God for them.
3 Then Moses climbed the mountain to appear before God. The Lord called to him from the mountain and said, “Give these instructions to the family of Jacob; announce it to the descendants of Israel: 4 ‘You have seen what I did to the Egyptians. You know how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. 5 Now if you will obey me and keep my covenant, you will be my own special treasure from among all the peoples on earth; for all the earth belongs to me. 6 And you will be my kingdom of priests, my holy nation.’ This is the message you must give to the people of Israel.”
