What a beautiful day! What a blessing it is to be a child of the creator who gives the grace of a new day just as beautiful as the grace of his mercy that is new every morning. I don't know how unbelievers live day in day out with the unforgiven debt that weighs on their hearts daily. What great love the father has lavished on us.
Let us not forget to be so gracious with those around us today. We need not become the man in one of Jesus' parables who is forgiven much but fails to forgive the small debt that he lent out to another. It seems that every shortcoming we find in other people, is just a microcosm of the great shortcomings our father in heaven puts up with from us.
This thought has come with my sermon in mind. If we are so foolish not to believe in the wisdom of the cross, that true wisdom is found in the seeming upside down logic of Christ's teachings, then we have it all wrong. If we don't believe and live into the belief that you must die to live and that the poor in spirit receive the Kingdom of God, then how can we ever accept the knowledge of God sending his son to earth in order to die for our sins. That is the ultimate upside down logic that saves us. What a beautiful day!
