Did you hear about the professor who was so absent-minded that when he fell down the stairs, he got up and said, "Wonder what all that noise was about?" All Christians need to work on their memories. In the Old Testament, the people of faith were often admonished to remember what the Lord had done for them. In the New Testament, we even have a sacrament devoted to memory; namely the Lord's Supper.
