Has there ever been a time in your life when you needed a second chance? Or maybe someone close to you hurt you and that person regrets the pain they caused you? How quick are you to give that person a second chance? Is it even an option?
Forgiveness is something I struggle with. I have to remind myself about the One I follow. Jesus passes out second chances like no other. I don't know about you but if somebody nailed me to a cross after torturing me relentlessly and forcing me to carry a big stick through a crowd, I would really struggle to say, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing."
That's what second chances are – acts of forgiveness. Do overs. We all need mulligans. I'm going to keep working on this. Today is a new day. It's a clean slate. I'm going to do my best to consider this day as a fresh start. How about you? Do you see the second chance exit just ahead? Have a great day.
