Everything in creation has a reason for existing.
Our reason for living: to know and be like Jesus.
2. Forget your past. (13)
a. forget the bad- painful experiences or things you are ashamed of (Isaiah 43:25, Jeremiah 31:34)
b. forget the good
A good past is not enough to guarantee a meaningful future. (4-6)
(7) “whatever was to my profit, I now consider loss.”
3. Face the Present. (13b)
It's easy to live in the past, or dream away the future; it's a challenge to face the present.
Martha (John 11:27) Facing the present means that we choose to live life as it comes to us day by day.
