Ether 7:27 -- On Remembrance and Righteousness

"And there were no more wars in the days of Shule; and he remembered the great things that the Lord had done for his fathers in bringing them across the great deep into the promised land; wherefore he did execute judgment in righteousness all his days."
Ether 7:27

I like the idea here of remembering being an integral part of being / choosing to be righteous.  It is a theme throughout the scriptures, that idea of remembering the Lord and the things that he has done.  Interestingly, Alma 37:8 tells us that one of the reasons that we need the scriptures is "they have enlarged the memory of this people."

Sometimes we get so caught up in today that we don't remember the spiritual experiences that we have had in the past, or the covenants that we have made, and why we made them in the first place.  Today, let's take some time to remember the Lord, the amazing things that he has done for us, and our ancestors, and let's talk to him.  Let's not forget the important spiritual context of our lives.  We don't want to get so caught up in today and in ourselves that we forget who we are with the Lord, or who we can be with his help.  Let's remember, and be righteous.
