37 The Lord said to Moses, 38 ‘Speak to the Israelites and say to them: “Throughout the generations to come you are to make tassels on the corners of your garments, with a blue cord on each tassel. 39 You will have these tassels to look at and so you will remember all the commands of the Lord, that you may obey them and not prostitute yourselves by chasing after the lusts of your own hearts and eyes. 40 Then you will remember to obey all my commands and will be consecrated to your God. 41 I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt to be your God. I am the Lord your God.”’
Having been condemned to wander the wilderness after yesterday’s passage where they looked only to the size of their opposition, forgetting the even greater scale of their God, amongst other instructions, God gives them this little aide to help them remember him throughout the day. Is there something you could do to help bring your mind to him from time to time?
Father, may you be at the start and end of my day, in every thought and every action.
