Breadcrumb: What will I get?

Deut. 11:13-25 describes the rewards the Israelites will receive if they keep God's commandments in the new land, and the punishments if they don't. Namely, obedience will glean rain for the harvest, grass for the cattle, and military conquest. Disobedience leads to drought. Though this has been covered before, these passages remind the Israelites that the consequences of their actions will be temporal, immediate, and relevant.
