I am reminded of the commands God gave to the Israelites to impress upon their children so they would learn and not forget what God had done for them. How He delivered them from slavery. (Deliverer) He destroyed their enemy. (Protector) Daily He provided them with manna. (Provider)
These are the commands, decrees and laws the LORD your God directed me to teach you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the LORD your God as long as you live by keeping all His decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life. Deuteronomy 6:1-2
Love the LORD your God, with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:5:9
In the Jewish culture they still carry on many of these same traditions that remind them of their God. So I thought what better holiday to start with than Valentines Day.
Mike also had a short devotion on love that went along with the cake theme. I plan on making this a tradition we do every year as a reminder of what Christ did for us.
