There are things in life we remember. There are things in life we forget. Sometimes, we forget the important things but remember the most insignificant things.
The most important things in life to remember, of course, are those things that have the greatest impact. For those of us who call ourselves Christians we understand that the most important things are the truth of God and the eternal destiny of people.
We need to be reminded frequently that life is more than the trappings of of this earthly existence. We need to be frequently reminded that eternity looms large. While we bask mindlessly in the solar warmth on the beach of this earthly life, the landfall of the tsunami of eternity is imminent. We know this . . . but do we remember it? We need frequent reminding because when we forget we fall away. 2 Peter 1:12-17
