Remembering God's great goodness

Two friends, united after years of separation, were recalling the happy times they had shared. Then one of them referred to a discordant business situation in which they both had been involved. Quickly the other replied: "Oh, yes. That is another event I remembered to forget." With that the conversation resumed its happy tone.

It is of no little importance to forget scientifically the hurts, tragedies, illnesses, of the past. "Behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind," declares the book of Isaiah. "But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create." Isa. 65:17, 18; The way to blot out the unhappy events of the past is through continued rejoicing in that which God has created.
