Day 71

Day 71 Reading – Deuteronomy Chapters 3-4

Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them. Deut 4:9 NIV

Why is it we so easily forget the lessons that we have learned from the past?

The Israelites have seemingly forgotten all that they have witnessed – The Plagues, the Red Sea, the Manna, the Quail, the Water from the Rock, the golden calf, more plagues, enemies defeated, etc.

Not only have they forgotten, but they have not taught the lessons to the next generation.

We are losing the current generation perhaps because we have forgotten to tell them about all that God has done for us.

When is the last time you told someone about all that God has done for you?

Day 72 Reading – Deuteronomy Chapters 5-7

Author:

I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
