2 Peter 3:1-9

Our memories are built up with the stories and things that we keep repeating over and over. At the dinner table, we repeat stories to affirm the memories we have. We don’t want to forget our stories because they remind us of who we are. The younger ones will remember every detail, but as you grow old you will forget.

My grandmother recited the psalms by memory and she stayed committed to repeating them until the day she died. My mother-in-law has dementia, but she still sings that one song that she can remember over and over. Throughout the story of the Israelites, we see that they forgot what the Lord did for them. Sadly the prophecies weren’t enough, the psalms they sang weren’t enough, the everyday reading wasn’t enough.

What do we need to do? Have conversations at the dinner table about your faith. Remember from where the Lord rescued you. Memorize the scripture, stay connected with those who affirm your memories, and develop a longing desire for remembering what the Lord has done for you.
