  1. 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.

  2. That’s right.
    Does that mean I can’t think about baseball or riding my bike anymore?

  3. Of course it doesn’t.
    Then how can I always remember Jesus?

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
