Good Morning – Aug 11

We have a short and a long memory in the wrong places.  I’m not talking about senior moments.  We tend to have a long memory when we’ve been injured by someone, and a short memory when it comes to the good.   Too many people let the offenses of others eat in the stomach like an acid drip, but when it comes to the blessings that God has provided, have trouble recounting them.  A good practice, and especially for the sake of our stomachs, is to let the bad go, forgive,  and “If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men” (Romans 12:18).  And as far as God is concerned, remember David’s word in Psalm 103,  “Bless the LORD, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His holy name.   Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with loving-kindness and compassion; Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle” (vss.1-5).   Then our memories will be in the right order.
