Lest We Forget

Lest We Forget

Deuteronomy 8:11-18

We learn very little by hearing something only once. How many times do you need to hear a name before that name sticks?

In Deuteronomy, Moses does a very simple yet profound thing: He repeats what God has already said while urging listeners to remember and walk faithfully. Do what you’ve already learned!

An entire generation of Israelites knew the right way to the Promised Land but chose to not act on that knowledge. As a result, their progress stalled. Deuteronomy is Moses speaking to the children of that generation.

As Christians, we are also blessed when we recall what we already know is true. But we must also act on it. We need the constant reminder to never outgrow what God has already commanded.
