Sermon questions for Sunday, March 9

Hi all,
Sunday sermon went pretty good. I am glad I had already written some qestions from last week. Even though there were no responses, it helped me prepare for this Sunday.

This coming Sunday, I am preaching on Deuteronomy 4:1-9 with a focus on verse 9.

Here are the verses: Deuteronomy 4:1-9 NRSV
4So now, Israel, give heed to the statutes and ordinances that I am teaching you to observe, so that you may live to enter and occupy the land that the Lord, the God of your ancestors, is giving you. 2You must neither add anything to what I command you nor take away anything from it, but keep the commandments of the Lord your God with which I am charging you. 3You have seen for yourselves what the Lord did with regard to the Baal of Peor—how the Lord your God destroyed from among you everyone who followed the Baal of Peor, 4while those of you who held fast to the Lord your God are all alive today. 5See, just as the Lord my God has charged me, I now teach you statutes and ordinances for you to observe in the land that you are about to enter and occupy. 6You must observe them diligently, for this will show your wisdom and discernment to the peoples, who, when they hear all these statutes, will say, “Surely this great nation is a wise and discerning people!” 7For what other great nation has a god so near to it as the Lord our God is whenever we call to him? 8And what other great nation has statutes and ordinances as just as this entire law that I am setting before you today? 9But take care and watch yourselves closely, so as neither to forget the things that your eyes have seen nor to let them slip from your mind all the days of your life; make them known to your children and your children’s children—

As you read this passage, what is it you hear God saying to you?
How do you keep from forgetting?
How have you made known to your children and your grandchildren and great grandchildren; the Lord your God?
