Deuteronomy 8:1-20

How soon they forget! That is more than just a clever saying, it is the truth. Sports fans forget that their team won last year when they begin to lose this year. Children forget the sacrifices their parents make for them. Students forget the teachers that taught them. We forget faces, dates, places, and even the names of old friends. But fortunately, most of what we forget is not all that serious.

Forgetfulness in the spiritual realm is more serious. In our text this morning, Moses warned God's people of forgetting what God has done for them in the past. There is a message for us this morning in the passage as well.

I. Beware of Forgetting God When Life Gets Good. cf v1-11

II. The Result of Forgetting God. v12-17

III. How To Recover From Spiritual Amnesia. v18

This morning let's remember God. Don't be misled into thinking that what we have is because of who we are. It is rather because of Whose we are! Do you know the Lord this morning? Have you been born again? If not, know that God loves you and wants to see you saved and serving Him. Will you come?

Christians, have we forgotten God? When we look around us and see all that we have do we give Him the glory? Or has pride found its way into our hearts and lives? Pride will cause us to forget our need for dependence on the Lord.
