THANK GOD FOR A SECOND CHANCE

THANK GOD FOR A SECOND CHANCE

    Moses was one of the greatest leaders the world has ever known.  We often think of him as the man who led God’s people out of slavery in Egypt.  But that’s only part of his story.

     Moses had murdered an Egyptian.  His motive may have been to help his people, but murder is murder.  God sent him to the middle of nowhere for forty long, lonely years.  During all that time, how often did he think his life was over?  Did he despair that his life would never have meaning again?

    But God gave him a second chance.  It didn’t come when Moses wanted or expected it, but when it came, he responded.  Many of us have blown it in a big way, either at work or at home, publicly or privately.  We’ve experienced the consequences of our sins, and we feel like we’ve been exiled to a foreign land.  Yet, God is amazingly gracious.  We don’t deserve a second chance, but He gives it–and maybe a third and a fourth, too.  We may wait for a long time, but when it comes, we need to be ready to respond.
