I have a terrible time remembering anything. Everyone, including our five year old, writes notes to remind me to do things. By the way, if we ever talk on Sunday and I say “please email that to me-If you don’t I’ll forget it” …I’m not blowing you off. I seriously want a reminder note so that I don’t forget what we talked about.
I’m glad we have a written account of God’s plan for us in the Bible. I read it not because it’s “magical”, not because it’s my “duty”, but because I constantly need a reminder of God’s plan for living here on earth. I need to be reminded that although society and technology have changed over the last 2000 years, God hasn’t. I need to be reminded that there are timeless truths that still can change our lives for the better today…If only we remember them.
Here’s a few really important things I was “reminded” of this morning…
13 Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Colossians 3:13
6 Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. 2 Corinthians 9:6
17 Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it. James 4:17
But remember that they will have to face God, who will judge everyone, both the living and the dead. 1 Peter 4:5
