After buckling my seat belt, I searched for my list. Where was my list? Not in my purse. Not in the car seat. Reluctantly, I unbuckled my seat belt and went back into the house. I knew from experience that trying to remember everything I needed to do never worked. My list was necessary for success.
Certainly, a list can be a useful memory aid when going to the grocery store. But there are more important experiences in life we need to remember. For instance, in the Old Testament, we see God’s encouragement to remember. The children of Israel used what was available as a memory aid of God’s work in their lives. In Genesis 28:18 we read, “Then Jacob rose early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put at his head, set it up as a pillar and poured oil on top of it.”
