Psalm 105:1-6 calls Israel and all those who worship God to remember his works. The poverty of my spiritual life is that I remember the wrong stuff and not far enough back or deep enough. I remember last week, the most recent phone call or the latest email. But I tend to forget God's faithfulness to me, my family and my forebears. I remember the slights and insults, the disappointments and the wounds instead of the blessings, grace, forgiveness and abiding presence of God.
May this new school year begin with better remembering.
