We ought to forget the past — that is, our past — whether it be good, in man’s eyes, like the apostle Paul’s, or bad, full of sins and vices, or oppressive, when we suffered at the hands of others. We ought to remember Christ’s past: his life, death, resurrection, and future blessedness.

Maybe I’ll share it here one of these days.
