These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. -Deuteronomy 6:6

Anthropologist Anthony Graesch says that the outside of a refrigerator reveals what's important to people. During a research study of families in Los Angeles, Graesch and his colleagues noted an average of 52 items posted on the fridge-including school schedules, family photos, children's drawings, and magnets. Graesch calls the refrigerator "a repository of family memory."

The Lord may use a tangible item like a photo, keepsake, or Scripture verse to remind us of His faithfulness and the call to obey His Word. When Moses addressed the Israelites just before they entered the land of Canaan, he urged them to keep all the commands God had given them. "Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road . . . . Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates"  (Deuteronomy 6:7, 9). 

Daily blessings are reminders of God's faithfulness.

Giving God's Word a visible place of honor in their homes and lives was a powerful daily reminder to "be careful that you do not forget the Lord, who brought you . . . out of the land of slavery" (v. 12).

Today the Lord encourages us to remember that as we obey His Word, we can depend on His faithful care for all that lies ahead. 

Prayer for Today

Father, we are grateful for every reminder of Your faithfulness and loving care. May we honor You by obeying Your Word.
