LET  US  NOT  FORGET


      "Beware that you do not forget the Lord your God"  (Deuteronomy).


     The more we have, the more prone we are to forget our need for God.

     The more we feel as if we have all we need, the more prone we are to forget even our desire for God.


     Yet, everything we have  comes ultimately from God, who "gives us richly all things to enjoy" (1 Timothy 6:17).


     Sadly, our enjoyment of God's provisions might just mean that we end up loving the  gift and forgetting the Giver. This is why, when God was getting ready to give His people a life full of bounty in the Promised Land of good and plenty, He warned, "Beware that you   do not forget the Lord your God" (Deuteronomy 8:11).


     If God has allowed us to enjoy material abundance, let us remind ourselves where it came from. In fact, all of us, whether rich in this world's goods or not, have much to be thankful for. Let us heed the warning not to forget the Lord. Let us praise Him for His abundant goodness. Let us love the Giver more than the gifts.
