To read the Bible in a year, read Deuteronomy 3–4 on March 7, In the year of our Lord Christ 2022

In the Book of Deuteronomy, Moses reviewed with the people of Israel the past forty years in the wilderness. Moses let them know that succeeding generations needed to know the things they had experienced:
“Only take heed to yourself, and diligently keep yourself, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. And teach them to your children and your grandchildren, especially concerning the day you stood before the LORD your God in Horeb, when the LORD said to me, ‘Gather the people to Me, and I will let them hear My words, that they may learn to fear Me all the days they live on the earth, and that they may teach their children.”
– Deuteronomy 4.9–10
The nation was just one generation away from completely forgetting the Lord, and often they did.
Therefore, he urged them to take heed to themselves and to keep themselves diligently, and that would insure that they would teach their children and their children would learn to fear the Lord their God.
Is this not the same thing that Christians should do? Should we not remember what the Scriptures teach and should we not remember church history, so that we will learn to fear our God?
- What have you learned from church history?
- Have you taught your children?
