September 23

Another week has passed us by.  We have so much to be thankful for.  But this week’s thought based on Sunday’s service has to do with our past failures.  Do we try to forget them?  Or do we try to remember and learn from them?  But our learning from our mistakes should not be then end of them.  Do we remember, learn, and then tell the next generation of our failures?  Too often we are tempted not to share with others the mistakes we have made.  We may even believe that we should let the next generation fall into the same mistakes we did so they will learn from them.  And while that may need to be the case in certain circumstances, we should try to help our kids not to make those same mistakes.  That is what learning from history is all about.  Because as I quoted from some wise people in my sermon, “Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it”.
