THE BISHOP'S CORNER
I purchased a new computer with Windows 10. I don’t know why Microsoft took some perfectly good programs and then made them much more difficult to use. Their trying to make their programs easier to use only complicated them. Written instructions tell me more than little icons.
The MS Outlook has a calendar that you can schedule appointments, and it automatically alerts you to attend whatever event you programmed into it. Wednesday I had an alert that told me I was four weeks overdue in observing our wedding anniversary. Really? Thanks a lot! Fortunately, I hadn’t relied upon a computer to remind me.
Remembering events, appointments, birthdays and important things should be a discipline that we all try to enhance. This is especially true when others are involved. Judaism was a remembering religion. They were to remember first of all that God was good to them. Much of their sacrificial system was remembering the goodness of God in their sacrifices. Praise offerings, First-fruits offerings, Heave offerings—they were remembering God’s goodness towards them.
Passover was especially a remembering event. Their ancestors had been slaves in Egypt. God had mercy upon them and delivered them from their slavery. He not only rescued them from their misery, but saved their firstborn from the judgment brought against the Land of Egypt. God also gave them a land flowing with milk and honey.
Remembering God’s goodness towards us is a constant theme found in Scriptures. Gratitude, celebrating God’s deliverance from sin and giving us freedom from its slavery should always be remembered in our prayers of thanksgiving. Every Sunday we eat the bread and drink the wine—to remember our Lord’s great sacrifice in our behalf. We owe Him everything.
This next Monday we remember our soldiers who paid the supreme sacrifice in service to our nation. Remember that. Don’t forget.
