”Now write down for yourselves this song and teach it to the Israelites and have them sing it, so that it may be a witness for me against them. When I have brought them into the land flowing with milk and honey, the land I promised on oath to their forefathers, and when they eat their fill and thrive, they will turn to other gods and worship them, rejecting me and breaking my covenant. And when many disasters and difficulties come upon them, this song will testify against them, because it will not be forgotten by their descendants. I know what they are disposed to do, even before I bring them into the land I promised them on oath.” So Moses wrote down this song that day and taught it to the Israelites.
”How soon we forget.” This phrase sums up my thoughts after reading the verses for today. When things are going well, I may tend to forget the most important truth of all. I did not get here on my own. I did not make any of this life happen, good or bad. I have very little power on my own- none, in fact. I owe it all to God. I must never lose sight of the Maker in all of this. I am thankful, and will remember to be thankful for every day and for every thing which comes my way. Lord, you have given us so much, and you will not forsake us. We have your promise of eternity. Amen
