I don't want you to forget, dear brothers and sisters, about our ancestors in the wilderness long ago. These things happened to them as examples for us. They were written down to warn us.
See 1 Corinthians 10:1, 11
If you don't learn from past mistakes, you will be lulled into a false sense of security. Learning from your past mistakes prepares you to not repeat them in the future. BE BLESSED!
