Called to Remember

Joshua 4: 1-7 NIV
When the whole nation had finished crossing the Jordan, the LORD said to
Joshua, 2 “Choose twelve men from among the people, one from each
tribe, 3 and tell them to take up twelve stones from the middle of the
Jordan, from right where the priests are standing, and carry them over
with you and put them down at the place where you stay tonight.”
4 So Joshua called together the twelve men he had appointed from the
Israelites, one from each tribe, 5 and said to them, “Go over before the ark
of the LORD your God into the middle of the Jordan. Each of you is to take
up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the
Israelites, 6 to serve as a sign among you. In the future, when your
children ask you, ‘What do these stones mean?’ 7 tell them that the flow of
the Jordan was cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD. When it
crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. These stones are
to be a memorial to the people of Israel forever.”
