In Remembrance

Today we reflected on the importance God places on remembrance. We are reminded repeatedly in Scripture that we should remember the important things. 

God also remembers all his promises and covenants: "He called to mind his covenant from long ago, the promise he extended to a thousand generations [...]" (Ps. 105:8)

Even though it's God's nature to remember, he also deliberately chooses to forget our sins against Him: "For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us" (Ps. 103:11-12). 

The Hebrew word for "remember" has the weighty implication of "to treasure." As God remembers His children, he treasures each and everyone of us.
