Every day the news is the same; Coronavirus statistics, world economies in trouble, graphs showing bad things going up and good things going down, rioting, extreme weather events, leaders lacking integrity – same old news. Remember when there was variety?
But I have come to realise that same again is not always a bad or boring thing. How about when we confess our sins and seek forgiveness? Far from finding it boring that God forgives me, I find it a joy and a relief. I will take that sameness anytime. Not being burdened by sin is a feeling I will never tire of.
Lord, we thank you for your mercy and grace. We are so grateful for the good news your word brings as we find the good in each day and hope for more tomorrow. Amen
