This is a day to remember. Each year, from generation to generation, you must celebrate it as a special festival to the Lord. This is a law for all time. -Exodus 12:14 (NLT)
We cannot live without memory. It enables us to learn and thereby to build relational bonds, to tend to our most basic needs, to protect ourselves from harm, to live in a world of laws, agreements and interrelationships necessary for survival. Memory also provides us with access-on-demand to past moments of great joy, important milestones and unmistakable errors that would otherwise be lost to the passage of time or painfully repeated again and again. This remarkable miracle planted in our brains by our Creator is not only for our benefit, but for Him. We have the capacity to recall His love for us, His acts of power and sacrifice, His promises that empower and enrich our lives. Use this gift – Remember!
