About Psalm 78...

In our ungratefulness, in our lack of thanksgiving, do we forget His works?

In forgetting His works, do we forget that He is Able?

In forgetting His Ability, do we put our trust in other abilities?

In trusting other abilities, do we root ourselves in lesser things?

In rooting ourselves in these lesser things, do we become unstable?  Tossed?

...what about sinful?  Rebellious?

I think it's a slippery slope, folks.

"Give ear, O my people, to my teaching; incline your ears to the words of my mouth!  I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings from of old, things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us.  We will not hide them from our children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his mights, and the wonders that he has done.  He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers to teach to their children, that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works for God, but keep his commandments; and that they should not be like their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation whose heart was not steadfast, whose spirit was not faithful to God."
