Did You Forget?

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

I taught Aircraft Familiarization at the Air Assault School. The students had to memorize the cruising speeds, lift capabilities, load capacities, etc... Lots of aircraft and lots of numbers. But you know, it’s been 25 years and I can’t remember doodly about the aircraft I had so meticulously memorized. It’s very perishable information. If we are not careful we may forget what God has done for us in the past as well. We might start living our lives as though He doesn’t care, hasn’t helped, and won’t guide us in the future. Take a trip down spiritual memory lane. Review the goodness of God often and remember that He is more than able to rescue, provide, heal, guide, and protect. Remember the Good things the Lord has done. SP169
