Are you like me? Prone to forget?
Well, then, here is a “how to” list that is sure to help us remember. A God-designed method for searing into our souls that which is most important.
“So commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these words of mine.
Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. Teach them to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates, so that as long as the sky remains above the earth, you and your children may flourish in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors.” Deuteronomy 11:18-21
God knew the people would have a hard time remembering His commands. He understood that, once they entered the promised land, there was a very real danger of forgetting what they had learned in the desert.
And so came stern warnings. Why? So that they and their children might live and flourish in that land of promise.
And isn’t this what we desire as well? Then, let us commit ourselves wholeheartedly to His word. Today, wherever we go, whatever we do, let us immerse ourselves in the remembering.
