READ EXODUS 29:38–46
Susan took her children to the town’s Holocaust Museum. Her great-grandmother had been a victim of the concentration camps, and her family made sure that each generation was told the horrible realities of those days. She explained to her children the meaning of each display and how their Jewish forefathers were affected.
Susan realized her children were too young to fully understand the history they were seeing and hearing. But she knew that they must be reminded throughout their lives of the sacrifices and triumphs of their heritage.
“Then I will dwell among the Israelites and be their God. They will know that I am the Lord their God, who brought them out of Egypt so that I might dwell among them. I am the Lord their God” (Exodus 29:45–46).
The Old Testament is full of many miracles God performed for the Israelites. But God often needed to remind them of His care and love for them, especially how He brought them out of their slavery in Egypt. Be careful that you never forget all of His blessings to you.
Thought for Today: God has been faithful through the ages, and He still is today.
