Deuteronomy 6:12

Deuteronomy 6:12
Take care not to forget the Lord, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery.

The Lord freed the Israelites from the land of Egypt.  He was giving them the land that he had promised their Father.  He must truly be a good God.  But Mosses tells them not to forget the Lord while they are enjoying all the gifts that he gave them.  

So often we are so busy enjoying all the gift that the Lord has blessed us with that we forget where all these gifts come from.  The Lord has provided us with all that we have and has given us the ultimate gift of eternal life with him in heaven but still we take him for granted and don't even remember him or take the time out of our busy lives to worship him and listen to his word.  He has given us everything but so often we don't even remember him.

Dear Lord, help me to remember you always.
