Fatal Forgetfulness!

(written September 23, 2013)

Deuteronomy 8:11a, NRSV

*Take care that you do not forget the Lord your God…*

Do not think foolishly and think to yourself that you did this.

That you blessed your own hands and created your own wealth.

That you created the birds and the bees, the flowers and the trees.

That you created what you needed for your sustenances and your existence. Do not think that you woke your own self this morning. That you put breath into your own lungs that you might breathe.

Don’t think that you gave stability to your legs that you could hold up your own body and hold in your own waste materials and walk into the bathroom and have the coordination to sit on the toilet and release the toxics in your body.

Don’t think that because you sat in a classroom that you acquired the ability to learn so that it is you who can recognize these lines and squiggles and understand them to be letters and words.

I can go on. You get the picture!!!
