A confused looking gentleman was noted on a street corner with a rope in his hand. Many people simply stared and passed him by. Finally a young man stopped and asked, "What's the problem?" "I'm not sure," replied the man. "I can't remember whether I found some rope or lost a horse." How prone we are to forget even important things. As Christians we need to remember. We need to remember what Jesus has done for us. We must remember what we have promised to do for him.
