Last month, sixteen year old Evan Xie, (shi-a) a grade ten student at Kings-Edgehill School in Windsor Nova Scotia received the Master of Memory award, at the World Memory Championship in China. How did he do it? Among other things, he memorized the order of a randomly shuffled deck of playing cards in a little over 32 seconds, and he successfully memorized eleven hundred and eighty digits in random sequence in one hour. He has an amazing memory. Some things are good to remember. Others are best forgotten. Interestingly, our Heavenly Father, Who knows everything about us, both good and bad, chooses not to remember our wrong-doing under certain circumstances. In the Book of Isaiah, God is recorded as saying, “I, even I am He who blots out your transgressions, … and will not remember your sins.” He didn’t lower His standards. This “forgetting” is because of His love, in giving His Son to die at Calvary to pay the penalty for our sins.
