You know, I really get tired of people coming to apologize for things they’re not going to change. I don’t feel like forgiving a mistake that someone is probably going to make again in the next hour or day. The whole I’m sorry, I won’t do it again, I’m sorry I did it again routine gets so old.
But, what I really can’t wrap my brain around is how God does it.
I can’t remember how many times I was sorry. Or how many times I was sorry, again. Or for that matter, how many times I was sorry and this was the last time. So, what I’m saying is, God forgave me knowing I would sin again. And His “know” isn’t a gut-instinct like ours, He really knows. Yet, He forgives.
So, the question is, who am I not to forgive you for some of the very things I’m asking God to forgive me?
