Solomon starts this proverb by reminding his son to not forget the law and keep his commandments.
I must have said that to my kids hundreds of times when they were young, “Don’t forget!” “Don’t forget to take your lunch….don’t forget to look both ways before you cross the street…..don’t forget to do your homework.” Don’t forget!
But now I am the one who forgets. Have you ever been asked for your phone number or maybe you needed to fill out a form and put your social security number down and you had to think about it? Not good! You have to remind yourself of what should be obvious to you.
Well, that is true with the Law of God too, we need to be reminded. Which is why we should have quiet time with the Lord each and every day so we won’t forget.
“Don’t forget the law,” Solomon says. Keep the commandment in your heart and it will grant to you length of days, long life, and peace.
Walking in His peace,
