Do you believe in second chances? I say I do. But do I really?
With the Lord, we have COUNTLESS second chances. As a sinner, sometimes it’s hard to believe that. As a human, that seems impossible.
As a Christ Follower, it’s a daily promise that is frighteningly real.
I use the word frighteningly because we are to love as the Lord loves us. What does this imply towards second chances?
Then Peter came to him and asked, “Lord, how often should I forgive someone who sins against me? Seven times?”
“No, not seven times,” Jesus replied, “but seventy times seven!
We are not only to forgive those who have sinned against us, but keep on forgivin’. Countless second chances.
It is so easy to expect forgiveness and second chances for yourself, from friends, family, even God. Yet when the time comes for you to be gracious, sometimes it’s rough.
This is why it’s so comforting to know that our Heavenly Father will ALWAYS forgive.
He gives us countless second chances. And he never tires of it. He loves us.
