Remember History


Deuteronomy 1:1–2:23

Those who do not remember history are doomed to repeat it.

Here, Moses reviewed the history of the wanderings of Israel for a new generation poised to enter the Promised Land.

*******

Moses reminded them that their parents had rebelled against the Lord.

Moses reminded them that their parents had missed out on the promises of God.

Moses reminded them that their parents had been condemned to die in the wilderness.

*******

God’s punishment can be avoided if we remember our history.

It was not just for the Israelites who were about to enter the Promised Land.

It is also for everyone who heeds God’s message.

Remember Your History!
