    The hardest place for any organization is not deciding to change nor is it arriving at its goal but in between because the natural tendency is to return to the familiar. We do so because we know it and it seems easier. Israel would rather have returned to slavery so they could eat melons and onions again. God wanted them to remember their escape, the desert, and his provision at every turn; hence, Aaron’s rod and manna in the ark where He was enthroned and the annual observance of Passover. It’s also why Jesus instituted Eucharist “in remembrance of me.”

    I read a long time ago that the failure to remember is the root of apostasy. Let us take our history with us as well as our continued thanks and dependence. God has prepared great things for us to do, but He has also prepared us in the bargain. As David taught us, we will do well to remember as we return, not once, but regularly, when we return to our touchstones.
