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?
