"Forgetting those things which are behind"

From the July 5, 1924 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


Probably many have wondered to what things Paul referred in Philippians when he wrote, "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. " It is plain that it was not the good which he forgot, because all Christians must remember and be grateful for all their benefits, for all of God's loving-kindness.
