“When your son asks you in time to come, saying, ‘What do the testimonies and the statutes and the judgments mean which the Lord our God commanded you? Then you shall say to your son…’”(Deuteronomy 6:20-21).
Memories make for powerful stories but they are also intended for the motivation of God’s people. Scripture challenges us often to remember, but never for the purpose of reflection alone. Our memories and memorials of God’s faithfulness were never intended to be a hitching post to the past but a guide post to the future. The faithfulness of God’s provision in days gone by is an assurance of his paving the way into an even greater days that lie ahead.
