Everyone Deserves a Chance

Because everyone needs recovery: “Does our Law decide about a man’s guilt without first listening to him and finding out what he is doing?” Now is the time to forgive this man and help him back on his feet. If all you do is pour on the guilt, you could very well drown him in it. Your own words have exposed your guilt. It’s nothing I’ve said–you’ve incriminated yourself! You have done everything right, Master, but all we have to show for our lives is guilt and shame, the whole lot of us.

John 7:51 ~ 2 Corinthians 2:7 ~ Daniel 9:7

Don’t Be Foolish

Psalms 69:5 God, you know how foolish I’ve been. My guilt is not hidden from you.

God knows everything about us. Knowing the foolish things that we have done hasn’t stopped Him loving us.

It is foolish for any of us to think we can achieve recovery without God’s help. We become foolish we rely more on ourselves than we do on Him. Psalm 14:1 says Foolish people say in their hearts, “There is no God.” They do all kinds of horrible and evil things. No one does anything good.

I can relate to this verse. I remember so much of my life before I invited Jesus to share it. Doing the wrong thing and justifying wrong things as right things for my own­­­­ selfish ambitions.

  • What foolish things do you still do and justify you need to stop?
