Remembering can be good spiritual exercise

A great deal has been written about the virtue of forgetting old grudges, prejudices, unpleasant experiences, and heartaches. We also need to be reminded of some of the blessings of remembering. Remembering can be good spiritual exercise. At Thanksgiving we need to:

  • Remember our sins that we might confess them to God.
  • Remember our weaknesses that we may receive strength.
  • Remember our humanity that we might stop trying to be God.
  • Remember God's mercies that we might be merciful to others.
  • Remember our joys that we might be joyful.
  • Remember God's greatness that we might be humble.
  • Remember our poverty that we might share our prosperity.
  • Remember God's forgiveness that we might forgive others.
  • Remember our needs that we might serve the needs of others.
  • Remember Jesus Christ that we might grow to be more like Him.
