Moses describes Israel as "a holy people to the Lord your God... a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth" (Deuteronomy 7:6). But this begs the question: why did God choose Israel? Out of all the mighty and important nations of the earth, why select this small, unimportant, and often rebellious group to fulfill His divine will? Moses answers this question in today's chapter, emphasizing the sovereignty of God's election when choosing people or groups of people for His service.
