Tassels


You will have these tassels to look at and so you will remember all the commands of the Lord, that you may obey them and not prostitute yourselves by chasing after the lusts of your own hearts and eyes.

Having been raised by a creative mom who started her own decorating business, I was around tassels quite a bit. The Israelites were instructed by God to put a tassel on it--on the corners of their garments--to remember. It's made me wonder: what do I have as a remembrance of God's instructions and goodness? Ware no less forgetful today than they were. I know that we have weaker memory. All the more reason to surround ourselves with remembrances for when sorrow and temptation and doldrums hit. 

What's your tassel?
