A new day
Lamentations 3:22-23 – The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
One of the youth leaders within our church mentioned this verse in a meeting a few weeks ago. He said how we need to take His mercies are new every morning seriously. Each day God wipes the slate clean and looks at us with new, fresh eyes. He falls in love with who we are every single day, regardless of what we did the day before.
Because God’s mercies for us are new every day, we need to make sure our mercies for others are new every day too. We need to treat everyone with a fresh respect as if we meet them anew every day. Whatever may have ticked you off about them the day before, must be gone. Wiped clean. New respect, new love and new mercies.
It’s a challenging task – but may it open your eyes to how deeply God loves us. The kind of love that’s so faithful and so unfailing, nothing compares.
