commentary: Lest We Forget
Things Are As God Wants Them
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 10-Dec-11; Sermon #1078c; 13 minutes
John Ritenbaugh, reiterating that Modern Israel has difficulty remembering God, and not remembering God's providence and His mercy, reminds us that we are descendants of this forgetful tribe. Ingratitude has been one of the most disgusting traits in the Israelitish culture, a trait that can only be corrected by thankfulness. Ingratitude is augmented by weariness and excessive business. Distraction and weariness leave us with too little time to place God in our thoughts. The entire western world is in a frantic free fall into immorality, making it increasingly hard to make contact with their Creator. We are to cultivate the mindset to be thankful in every situation, praying without ceasing. To refuse to give thanks in prayer is like clipping the wings from a bird, rendering it incapable of flying. Remember that God oversees everything that is happening.
