“My parents went to _______ and all they bought me was this lousy t-shirt!”
How many of us have seen these shirts, or perhaps even have one tucked in a drawer gathering dust? Of all the amazing gifts we could bring back from a foreign country, and all we got was a t-shirt!
Souvenirs represent a gift, but more so, they carry a memory.
What if instead of lousy t-shirts, we had stones of remembrance?
Verse 6 and 21 tell us the purpose behind the memorial. “When your children ask their fathers in times to come, What do these stones mean? then you shall let your children know, Israel passed over this Jordan on dry ground.”
