"Thank you for giving me a second chance..."
A student's grateful response ignites my memory of all the second chances God has given me.
Why am I so quick to disqualify someone, child or adult, the moment I deem something wrong? If God gave me the same treatment that I give others, I would have been estranged from Him long ago. But thankfully, I serve a merciful God who gives second chances, third chances and more. He longs for my heart to be united with Him. And when I come to Him in humbleness for my actions, He forgives, forgets and refines.
I am in need of second chances. And so are those around me. Let this be my reminder to humbly go forth always seeking to change and be refined by my Master Creator. Let it also be a reminder that those around me need my forgiveness and second chances as well...
