The Lost Pen

As I’ve just moved house I tend to be told disasters stories of other people’s moves. The most amusing was from my bank manager. When they moved house his wife had the job of packing and labeling the boxes, while he did some of the heavier jobs. As we know labeling the boxes is one of the most important jobs. Box after box she packed and used a marker pen to indicate what was placed inside.

All went well until she inadvertently packed the marker pen inside one box and couldn’t remember which one she had placed it in. I never heard how the problem was solved. Do we do that with the Holy Spirit? We can pack away and hide one of the most important factors of our Christian lives.
