Unforced Errors

June 30, 2024


The bad news about being human is that we will make mistakes. The good news is that we do not have to be defined by those mistakes. There is always someone who struggles with the same thing we do; and we have a God who knows our weaknesses and loves us anyway. In the game of life, there will always be unforced errors; but unlike tennis, our errors can be overruled and overturned by God’s forgiveness. In Jesus Christ, God gives us a second serve…a second chance…and it’s a beautiful thing. “O Israel, hope in the LORD! For with the LORD there is steadfast love, and with him is great power to redeem. It is [God] who will redeem Israel from all its iniquities” (vv. 7-8).
