and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.

Memorize this chapter today. Come on, you can do it. It is only 2 verses! (And then you could say that you memorized an entire chapter of the Bible!) Throughout the day, repeat these words, reminding yourself of the command and reminding yourself of the reasons for the command. At the end of the day, take time to notice what difference this made in your life.
