Another Try

Yet there is one ray of hope; his compassion never ends. It is only the Lord's mercies that have kept us from complete destruction. Great is hid faithfulness; his lovingkindness begins afresh each day. My soul claims the Lord as my inheritance; therefore I will hope in him. Lamentations 3: 21-24 (TLB)

Last week during a friendly round of golf, Jerry Albritton, from Kentucky, hit an errant drive. He exclaimed, "Man, I wish I could have that one back! I'm sure I could do better." Fortunately for Jerry, his golfing partner said, "Give it another try." So Jerry did, and he hit the ball long and straight down the fairway.

How many times in our lives have we wished to correct a mistake or retract an unpleasant word or action that hurt someone? Many times Jerry has thought about how a certain situation might have turned out differently if he had put himself in the other person's shoes for a moment before reacting in an unwarranted, negative way.

We are fortunate that our loving God understands the human heart and mind. No matter how many times we miss the mark, God gives us an unlimited supply of chances to correct our errant actions, while forgiving us as we try to learn from our mistakes.

Prayer: Dear God, bless us with courage and discernment to do what is right according to your will, in Jesus' name. Amen.
