Below is a post from Michael's Blog on Symbols that enhance our walk with G-d. It is very well done.
Living a Symbolic LifeWhen Yeshua was asked what the greatest commandment was, He answered,
"The first of all the commandments is: 'Hear, O Israel, YHVH our God, YHVH is one. And you shall love YHVH your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.' This is the first commandment."He is, of course, referring to the Sh'ma in Deu. 6, which continues:
And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.What does it mean to bind God's words on our hands and as frontlets between our eyes?
