BLESSED ARE THE FORGETFUL

 

Reverend James Moore of Houston tells about an elderly man who spoke at a banquet.  With a broad grin and a twinkle in his eye, the man said, “I know I’m old because there are three things I can’t remember:  I can’t remember names, I can’t remember faces, and I can’t remember the third thing I can’t remember.”

Forgetfulness is not all bad.  Without it the pain of our failures and losses would be almost unbearable.  Here are some things we need to forget: to tell someone ‘I told you so’; the excuses for our failures; the sins that have been confessed and forgiven; past failures whose lessons have been learned; all jokes that put down other people; and the times we have been neglected or mistreated.

 

Life is so much happier when we forget what we should.
