“Matt and Mandy,” Friend, Apr. 2000, 7
Earth to Matt! It’s your turn, big guy. Is something wrong?
Well, you said that when Mandy and I get baptized, we’ll promise to always remember Jesus.
Does that mean I can’t think about baseball or riding my bike anymore?
Of course it doesn’t.
Then how can I always remember Jesus?
t’s that word always, isn’t it? Tell me, when you’re playing baseball do you forget whether or not the sun is shining?
Well, no. I don’t always think about it “out loud,” but I know.
Jesus is the light in our lives. If you love Jesus and think about Him often, you’ll live in His light, whatever good thing you’re doing.
Then when you face a tough decision, you’ll remember Him “out loud” and obey His commandments.
Thanks, Dad. Now I’m ready to beat you at croquet.
