Mon, 01/29/18, "Day of Praise"
Deuteronomy 4:31 - "For the Lord your God is a merciful God. He will not leave you or destroy you or forget the covenant with your fathers that he swore to them."
We were going through last year's pictures today! Son Caden's January 2017 high school senior football championship banquet pictures reminded me of the time I took his football workout clothes out of the dryer, and apparently I forgot to put in a fabric softener sheet. Ya know, they didn't have the fabric softener feel or smell.
And then I smelled the smell. It wasn't just the absence of a dryer sheet. It was the presence of the pre-wash smell. And then, it dawned on me: I never put the laundry detergent in the washing machine. I forgot the soap!
Now, c'mon; admit it. You know you've done it, too. But who knows? How do you remember what you forgot?
Well, praise the Lord that God never forgets! God never forgets his people, his covenant, and he certainly never forgets the soap. Ya know, the soap? It's the love of God and the blood of Jesus that washes the stink of our sin away.
So have a great day! And don't forget! God always remembers you!
