Remember

“Remember the days of old, Consider the years of many generations. Ask your

father, and he will show you; Your elders, and they will tell you" (Deuteronomy

32:7, NKJV)



The Bible, the Old Testament in particular, is filled with the admonition to God's

people to remember. From Genesis to Revelation we are told to "remember" and

"do not forget."


Today, in America we celebrate Memorial Day. Memorial Day is a day set aside

by the federal government for the citizens of the United States to "remember" those who served in the armed forces and died in service. Different from Veterans Day

when we honor and celebrate all armed service members alive and deceased.


Memorial day is a day to remember those who lost their lives in service. As this

verse of scripture encourages, we should remember and "consider the years of

many generations . . ." We must remember the service and the sacrifices of the

many who died that we might enjoy the freedoms and liberties we have today.


So as many celebrate days like Memorial Day relaxing on their day off work,

barbecuing, enjoying the beaches, parks and lakes, (while still social distancing

ourselves due to the Coronavirus) we should all "REMEMBER." Spend a few

moments in quiet reflection, giving thanks to God for those who served and died

for our liberty. In the Bible, for the Jews of the Old Testament, it was a sin to

forget. Let us not be guilty of the sin of forgetfulness. Let us always,

REMEMBER.
