Forgetful of Jesus?
"Do you not find yourselves forgetful of Jesus?
Some creature steals away your heart, and you
are unmindful of him upon whom your affection
ought to be set. Some earthly business engrosses
your attention when you should have your eye
steadily fixed upon the cross.
It is the incessant round of world, world, world;
the constant din of earth, earth, earth, that takes
away the soul from Christ.
Oh! my friends, is it not too sadly true that we can
recollect anything but Christ, and forget nothing
so easy as him whom we ought to remember?
While memory will preserve a poisoned weed,
it allows the Rose of Sharon to wither."
