The Gifts of Memory | Mark Marten
Time for us travels in only one direction, such that once a moment is past it’s gone forever. While this helps us deal with life’s challenges (“time heals all wounds”) we can also experience a strong sense of loss and even grief as we pass through the joyous times of life. Lest we despair, God has given us “a future and a hope” (Jer 29:11), He’s given us the gift of memory. We’ll talk about our tendency to forget, both the good and the bad, and why God so often commanded the Israelites to “remember” in the Old testament. We’ll explore how memories can make a positive difference in our lives and bring us closer to Him.
