How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it.

'Remember the word that I said to you' John 15:20
I like to scan through pictures, old and new. It reminds me of all the fun that I've had and have forgotten. I can remember watching old movies as a child. Dad would setup the projector and reels of movies and we'd sit around listening to this machine clicking away as we watched some small fragment of a vacation, a holiday or birthday. Remembering can be fun but it can hurt too.
How do you practically setup your day to remember the words of your savior? There's a lot of encouragement to memorize scripture. For those of us in a free country, where the scriptures are readily available we take for granted the easy access we have to such holy words, and we put off any efforts of memorization. Yet these Words reveal truth as it really is, outside the stains of sin in this world. That means it reveals God himself.
Think of the Hubble telescope. $4.5 billion, to date, have been spent so people can peer into deep space to get a glimpse of the beginning of time. Well the Bible reveals before the beginning, 'In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.' God has gone to great lengths to preserve his scriptures that we might have it as a pointer to himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Scriptures are even stronger than the Hubble yet because it's been God's economy of effort to write, and preserve them we don't consider it as exciting. Yet it shines light on the beginning and the end.
Before we are going to remember something we have to think it worth remembering. I pray that you realize the importance of the Scriptures, the Bible. If scriptures are available to you that you would then take advantage of reading and remembering the promises of God, even more than you remember garbage night or paying the bills. 'This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.'
