    I think god wants us to learn the importance of keeping to his commandments

    Verse 7~The Israelites were to pass down to their children the history of how Jehovah God took care of them and delivered them and this would help their children build faith and trust in God.

    Enjoying reading through the Bible in a year. Have been playing "catchup" for over a week now. That is ok. I love how the Israelites were told to teach their children by many means (monuments, feasts, days etc) about God and their deliverance.

    Mighty indeed is the Lord. There is no one like Him. As He parted Jordan and the Red Sea, He will part all challenges facing us but we have to trust, love and obey Him. God should give us the grace to serve Him with all our heart and soul.
  • KerryAnn
    The stones is a reminder to human due to the fact that we often forget the goodness of God and turn aside to idols the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom let us teach our children the fear of the Lord and their days will be long upon the land with the Lord our God giveth thee
