Out of sight, out of mind.
For some things this is definitely true, but when it comes to those we love, they are definitely not out of our mind when they are not around.
Whether we have loved ones who are working far from home or moved to another country, they are in our mind, even if we don’t speak to them as often as we used to do.
For those loved ones who have passed away, they too are definitely not far from our mind even although they are no longer here. If anything they are on our mind more, because we miss them, and wish we could have more time with them.
Do we feel the same when it comes to our friends, neighbours, colleagues and fellow christians? In other words, if we don’t see any of these people one day, do we just ignore that and carry on, not bothering to check they are ok, or do we keep them in our mind, check up on them, and pray for them?
Don’t let anyone you know fall out of your thoughts just because you don’t see them as regularly as you used to.
