Remember the Rechabites

Remembering is an important part of life. In fact, life and freedom become precarious and tenuous if we forget to remember. We American are having an especially hard time remembering important things in our past. We want to put all our investment of thought, time and energy in the future. We are a lot like Huckleberry Finn. He was finally starting to get interested in the Bible when Aunt Polly was learning him about Moses and the bulrushes, but then she let it out that Moses was dead and that was the end of that. In the immortal words of Huck, “I don’t take no stock in dead people.” So, it is with us. We as a nation are putting less and less stock in dead people, and as a result less and less stock in the things people died for.
