We all get chances and we all give people more chances than they probably think they are worth! The funny part of this is we sometimes forget that God gave us his only Son to die on the cross and he was 100% perfect. I know we forget, because more than half the time if I do something wrong I used to internally beat myself up for what ever it would have been. I still do sometimes it’s slowly becoming less and less, but I still have trouble snapping out of it without help. You see we all think we our worth is very little, but all we have to do is read John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
We can’t even come close to being that much like Jesus, but every morning is another chance for us to show Jesus to the world, to the people we love and care for! He gives us more chances than anyone else in existence and the reason is simple, because he loves us unconditionally and unendingly! He forgives us no matter what we do, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t strict it just means he will give us another chance to get it right. The point is he wants us to give others chances when they mess up! That doesn’t mean that if someone breaks your trust you have to go back to trusting them fully it just means you give them another chance to earn your trust back! I have given up on people and it has hurt, but the thing is the people I gave up on were so stuck in their own ways that it had become painful for me!
