Today’s 333 Devotional: “Memorial Stones”
With today being Memorial Day, it got me thinking about building memorials in our lives.
While I’m not a big fan of physical representations, there’s just something that speaks to me when the children of Israel set up a memorial to commemorate and remember the miracle God gave in stopping the waters of the river Jordan allowing them to cross over to the Promise Land.
“And those twelve stones which they took out of the Jordan, Joshua set up in Gilgal. Then he spoke to the children of Israel, saying: ‘When your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying, ‘What are these stones?’ then you shall let your children know … or the Lord your God dried up the waters of the Jordan before you until you had crossed over … that all the peoples of the earth may know the hand of the Lord, that it is mighty, that you may fear the Lord your God forever.’” (Joshua 4:20-24)
A memorial is an object that serves to focus a memory of something that has occurred, whether it has been a person who has died, or an event. The most common memorials are landmarks or art, such as sculptures, statues, or fountains. People have placed memorial plaques on park benches, or at the site where the event occurred.
This is done to let others know about what happened, or the person being commemorated. Its purpose is then to give testimony.
When it comes to your testimonial, what has God done in your life? Have you set up some sort of memorial to commemorate the miracle in your life?
It may simply be a posting something on the Internet or on Facebook. You can place a memorial plaque somewhere where others can see it and ask the meaning.
What is your memorial? What sort of memorial can you erect, and what sort of testimony will you give where others will know the mighty hand of God and give Him glory?
