Day 26 - June 1, 2012

 

Day 26 - Jun 1, 2012

There's a Spanish story of a father and son who had become estranged. The son ran away, and the father set off to find him. He searched for months to no avail. Finally, in a last desperate effort to find him, the father put an ad in a Madrid newspaper. The ad read, “Dear Paco, meet me in front of this newspaper office at noon on Saturday. All is forgiven. I love you. Your Father.

On Saturday 800 Pacos showed up, looking for forgiveness and love from their fathers.

Not long before she died in 1988, in a moment of surprising candor in television, Marghanita Laski, one of the best-known secular humanists and novelists, said, "What I envy most about you Christians is your forgiveness; I have nobody to forgive me."

Forgiveness is probably the Christian’s most powerful tool.  How much the world could be changed if we prayed for forgiveness.

Blessings,

Pastor David
