List-making   is   a   common   practice.      It’s   not   just   for   older   people,   but   for   anyone   who   has   important things   they   need   to   do   but   are   afraid   they   might   forget   them.      Some   believe   that   if   they   make   a   list, they   won’t   forget   what   they   need   to   do   and   will   follow   through.      Crossing   finished   items   off   a   list   gives them a feeling of accomplishment. Unfortunately,   some   don’t   cross   many   items   off   their   list   because   they   either   procrastinate   or   resist being   compelled   to   do   tasks   they   don’t   want   to   do.      Some   just   forget,   either   because   they   have   too many   things   to   remember,   or   because   they   just   don’t   want   to   do   what   they   need   to   do.   For   these people, lists can be disheartening. The   Christian   has   serious   responsibilities   that   God   requires   him   to   fulfil.      Paul   tells   his    Corinthian   readers that   they   need   to   examine   themselves   to   see   if   they   are   in   the   faith   (II   Cor.   13:5).   In   order   to   fulfill   this command,   Christians   need   to   have   a   list   (at   least   a   mental   one)   of   their   responsibilities   to   aid   them   in the task of self-examination.   For   those   who   use   lists   successfully,   we   have   provided   a   spiritual   checklist   on   this   website.      Take   an honest   look   to   see   where   you   are   in   regard   to   each   of   the   items   on   the   list.      If   you   are   not   able   to   check a   box   in   front   of   a   category,   that   is   an   indication   that   this   particular   item   is   one   you   need   to   work   on.      Be thankful for your strengths, and work on your weaknesses!
