Monday 26 October
 Remember your roots 

 

 

Read Isaiah 51:13 - 16

You have forgotten the Lord, your Maker, who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth. (verse 13a)

 

Forgetfulness is a human condition that most people experience. Take, for example, forgetting where you left the house keys, or the name of a colleague you associated with a decade ago; these situations happen from time to time. Yet with effort and patience in trying to recall names, places and events, remembering a person’s name, for example, slowly comes back. Remembering therefore requires effort and deliberate action to evade forgetfulness.

  

Remembering your roots is a call not to forget one’s family and the communities in which one was raised. It means not getting caught up in who we have become, by being overly consumed by any successes and prosperity in the present, yet forgetting the simple and humble beginnings where it all started. Remembering your roots is a call not to forget God’s hand in creation, where he has made us the way he intended. It is no accident, our heritage we were born from, our skin tone, nationality, culture and the language that we speak; these are all part of God’s grand design in creation. Our part is to accept how God has created us and never to forget all God has done for us.

 

The prophet Isaiah reminds us how the people of Judah, during the Babylonian captivity, forgot how God restores His people and brings them comfort and salvation. Remembering God takes effort and deliberate actions, such as taking an active role in church practices, and a solid personal prayer life with regular reflections upon the Bible. Such practices ground us in not forgetting that God provides for, comforts and blesses us each and every day.

 

† God our comforter and provider, help us to always remember that you have made us exactly how we are supposed to be. May we never forget your love and concern in our lives always. Amen
