“If you follow My laws and faithfully observe My commandments” Leviticus 26:3
God reminds us that our covenant with God is a conditional one. If we follow our part, we will be rewarded. If not, there are no rewards, just punishment. This reminds us that we have many duties toward God and people as God’s chosen people. And we have an extra responsibility to fulfill our part of the covenantal relations we have with Adonai.
