This morning I was praying the Canticle of Zechariah and I misread the line “promised…to remember his holy covenant” as applying to us–instead of God “remembering” his covenant with us, we need to remember it. It struck me that it works both ways. I’m not sure exactly what it means for God to metaphorically “remember” us, but it’s urgent for us to remember Him. The image of God and me remembering the covenant between us reminds me of marriage. Whenever something goes wrong between spouses, the only way to restart is to recall your vows, the covenant between you.
Just a quick thought for today! I have several things I’d like to write about, but we’re in the middle of a move and I haven’t had time.
