“And it shall be, when your children say to you, ‘What do you mean by this service?’ that you shall say, ‘It is the Passover sacrifice of the Lord, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when He struck the Egyptians and delivered our households.” Exodus 12:26,27.
In the above passage, God instructs Moses that they should be reminded of the meaning of the service. A reminder is quite important because we have the tendency to forget easily. That is why you see God telling us in the Bible that we should remember.
One time Hyemi read this article on the importance of protecting your eyes, so we decided to buy Sebin a pair of sunglasses. This was when she was really young. We wanted to make sure that she got sunglasses with proper protection, so we purchased a rather pricey pair of sunglasses. It only went for so long. In less than a couple of months, Sebin had scratched the lens on the hard ground so much that it was impossible for her to wear her sunglasses.
Eventually, I had to call and order a spare lens to be replaced. The spare lens arrived a few weeks later and we got it replaced. The first thing I did was to warn and instruct her never to scratch the lens anywhere. I know that is not enough. Because she forgets I had to keep reminding her to be careful with her sunglasses.
Remembering is very important for us. Because we forget, we must be able to remind ourselves regularly of the things that God has told us in the Bible.
