I intend to spend this day with all the curiosity and imagination that God gave me.
Today I will notice SECOND CHANCES. Did my car start on the first try or did it need a second chance? Did I walk into the wrong room and then correct myself? Did I use or pronounce a word incorrectly and try again? Our Christian faith is clear that second (and third and 77) chances are at the center of our relationship with God. Did I hurt someone? I can ask for forgiveness and a second chance. How many times can I see examples of this in a day?
I intend to spend this day with God.
Matthew 18:21-22 (NRSV)
Then Peter came and said to Jesus, “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to Peter, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times.
I intend to share my joy.
How will I share this day?
Contact someone who has hurt me and forgive them?
Support companies that hire people who have been in prison?
Welcome those who have left and returned?
Be generous about granting second chances!
