Hope and encouragement: how to read the instructions of Life carefully

Have you ever needed a job and wasn't sure if the one you were offered fit for you?
Same here with me. 
I was asked to be a part of a church commitment weekly. Apparently I misread the manual! 
Anyway, the truth of the matter is that when you are given a job, read the instructions correctly! 
I hope this encourages you to be able to do things you were never able to do before!
Deuteronomy 6:1-9 NIV
[1] These are the commands, decrees and laws the Lord your God directed me to teach you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, [2] so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the Lord your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life. [3] Hear, Israel, and be careful to obey so that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly in a land flowing with milk and honey, just as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, promised you. [4] Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. [5] Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. [6] These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. [7] Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. [8] Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. [9] Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
