In part five of our series, Pursue: Chasing God in a Godless World, we pause to remember. Along the way of our journeys after Jesus, problems and challenges are going to arise. When these do, if we’re not careful, we can get so focused on dealing with them that we forget about the God who’s been helping us all along. Keep reading to see what impact this can have and how we can avoid it.
Avoid Spiritual Amnesia
When was the last time you forgot something? (And if you can’t remember, now counts.) Forgetting things is frustrating. For the life of me, I can’t figure out how some things stick, but others don’t. Usually, it too often seems like the inane, unimportant things stick, while the important ones don’t. That’s infuriating, isn’t it? It’s infuriating for us, sure, but it’s infuriating for the people around us who were perhaps counting on us remembering them. Guys—confession time—we do that more often than our wives do, don’t we? I know I need to work on that all the time and I’ll bet some of you do too.
