Today's reading: Joshua 4:1-23
God's final instruction to Joshua as the Israelites crossed the Jordan River was for the Israelites to erect a twelve-stone memorial so that the present-day Israelites and the generations to follow would have a tangible reminder of the miracle God performed on their behalf. "This is where the Israelites crossed the Jordan on dry ground" (vs. 22).
Why are spiritual memorials (things that help us remember how God provided and/or moved on our behalf) important? Do you have any spiritual memorials (whatever that may be) to help you remember things like God's goodness or faithfulness through a difficult situation, your salvation, baptism, baby dedication, marriage vows? Do you make it a point to tell others, and particularly children, about God's greatness and what He has done for you? Tami
