Thought for the Day: When we have done something wrong, I don’t believe God is looking to humiliate us or crush our egos. Instead, God is always encouraging us toward a healthier and happier future. Bernard Meltzer said, “When you forgive, you in no way change the past – but you sure do change the future.” I think the same is true about being remorseful and seeking forgiveness. God is not looking for a show in which people demonstrate regret through ripping up their clothes. Instead, God desires a changed heart. It would make no difference in regard to the past, but it will create the potential for a renewed relationship in the future.
Prayer: A real change can occur this day, O Lord – a change birthed through your grace, a change to create a different future. Thank you for your help! Amen.
