Scripture: Micah 7:18-19
Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. 19 You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.
Jesus’ wounds remind me of the ways I’ve wounded others. His scars remind me of the ways I’ve been scarred by the consequences of my actions. His fall under the weight of the cross reminds me of the weight of my sin. Most times when I sin, I don’t grasp the seriousness of what I’m doing. Jesus took the weight of the world’s sin upon himself. Thank you for your mercy Lord. Thank you for your love.
With a spirit of thankfulness for the work of Jesus Christ for you; compose a thank you note/text/letter to someone in your life who has shown you mercy and grace. Simply thank them for modeling the mercy and grace of Jesus in your life. Now send this special message to that special person.
Prayer:Lord, when I really need mercy and grace from people who care about me, help me to accept it and respond with my thankfulness. Amen.
