In the beginning of Exodus, we have a new king in Egypt. It’s many years later after Joseph’s death, and this new Pharaoh didn’t know about Joseph. He forgot about what Joseph had done for Egypt. And the Israelites increased in number They got to be so many that the new Pharaoh was worried that the Egyptians would be taken over by the Israelites. They enslaved the Hebrews and the Egyptians were commanded to kill all the newborn baby boys. They had forgotten their history, but God had not forgotten about his people!
Our Bible reading is from Exodus 1:1-22.
“Arise, O Lord; O God, lift up your hand; forget not the afflicted.”Psalm 10:12
Over the years, the Egyptians forgot their history. It’s a dangerous thing to forget your past. When we forget our history, we forget who we are and where we came from. We can’t learn from our mistakes and past actions if we forget what’s happened. That’s why we read the Bible and remember what God has said and done.
