Pillar

Re: Verse reading–Exodus 12:1-14, 24-27, 13:8-9 (day three)

“This observance will be for you like a sign on your hand and a reminder on your forehead…”  You can lead a people out of 430 years of forced servitude, but they forget in the morning.  You can stumble through words of wisdom you didn’t know you had in you to guide a foolish child, but you won’t remember that saving grace next week.  God knows that we’re prone to such lapses in our thinking and in our living.  “Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,” says one of the most honest hymns ever written.  When we forget God’s provision, we get in trouble.  God says to remind one another: Set up a pillar, make a feast, commemorate a day so you will not forget.  How are you marking God’s saving activity in your life?
