A Story about Forgetting that’s Worth Remembering

I will forgive their wickedness
and will remember their sins no more.
                —Jeremiah 31:34

The old mystic told him that she and Jesus talked one-on-one every night, and that he told her about the shenanigans of people who thought their sins were secret.

He was skeptical, but . . . but he was tormented by a sin of many moons ago. He had prayed for forgiveness, but still had a feeling he was on thin ice. So he palmed her five bucks to ask Jesus what the sin was that still had him spooked.

The next day he asked her if she had spoken with Jesus.

She said she had.

“What did he say my sin was?”

“He said he forgot.”

Now that’s a story about forgetting that’s worth remembering. What God forgives he forgets. “Their sins . . . I will remember no more” (Heb 10:17).

Stop stewing over what God has forgotten.
