Isaiah 58 is an interesting chapter of the Bible, especially in the Living Translation. In verses 13, 14 Isaiah says, "If you keep the Sabbath holy, not having your own fun and business on that day, but enjoying the Sabbath and speaking of it with delight as the Lord's holy day, and honouring the Lord in what you do, not following your own desires and pleasure, nor talking idly-..."

Remembering what God has done for me builds my faith. It also keeps me from making bad choices.
This was an integral part of life for the people of Israel. They often set up 'memorials' to remind themselves and their children of what God had done for them at a particular place and time. Jacob after his dream, and Joshua after he led the people across the river Jordan into the Promised Land are some examples. Entire festivals in the Bible were instituted for the purpose of remembering - Purim (in the book of Esther), and of course, the Passover.
