Remembering and Forgetting

Is it not strange that we are able to remember that we forgot something? Recently I came across an article about memory in The Dallas Morning News that made me think about things I wish I could remember. For example, sometimes I forget I am getting older. But we all know that every one of us is getting older. As we are getting older, our forgetting some things and events increases, but our remembering ability is likely to decrease.

The News article listed three things about memory: (1) Common behavioral symptoms may include loss of appetite, (2) Tasks like handling money and paying bills are troublesome and (3) Processing thoughts and communication become more difficult.

Like it or not, the truth is that death for all of us is certain. That fact should remind us to think about where we will spend eternity. There are only two places where all of us will spend eternity–either heaven or hell. That is sobering, is it not? The only way to be sure of heaven is to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. Nothing else will equip us for heaven. That's my thought for you today.
