” 37 Again the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,Numbers 15: 37-41
38 “Speak to the children of Israel, and tell them to make tassels for themselves on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to put a blue thread in the tassels of the corners.
39 Then it shall be, you shall have the tassels; and you shall look upon these, and remember all the commandments of the Lord and do them; and you shall not turn aside after your minds and your eyes by which you prostitute yourselves,
40 and may remember and do all My commandments, and be holy for your God.
41 I am the Lord your God, who brings you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the Lord your God.”
In many ways God spoke to his people in the desert to keep his commandements. One way was to attach tassels to their garements to keep His commandements. Let’s remember God ‘s commandements and do them, we may live and not die in the wildreness of this world.
