0ops. Goofed again
The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving even though we have rebelled against him. Daniel 9:9, NIV.
I bought a blouse with tiny pleats down the front. After wearing it once, I washed it. Poof! The pleats disappeared in the machine. I hadn't noticed that the tag on the blouse said, “Dry-clean only.” Oops! I goofed.
I tried to boil an egg in my microwave. Baboom! The door flew open and peppered my kitchen counters, floor, and ceiling with egg fragments. The microwave's guidebook said not to boil eggs. Oops! I goofed.
One night I accidentally brushed my teeth with Cortaid, an anti-itch cream. Oops! Goofed again.
Researchers say one out of every six choices we make will be wrong. So what does a perfect God do with imperfect children? He forgives, that's what. Even when I don't follow the advice He gave in His “manual,” He forgives.
Best of all, I don't need to sleep on a bed of nails or walk on sizzling hot coals or wear itchy underwear to earn His forgiveness. All I do is ask, and my goofs are forgotten. Zip! Just like that. Only an out-of-this-world God could love His kids that much. Only an out-of-this-world God could so graciously forgive.
