We often believe that we do not deserve a second (or third or fourth or hundredth) chance. And we’re mostly right. We don’t deserve it by our own rules and laws and things.

But this life isn’t just about our rules and our beliefs, no, this life is also about discovering the belief or values of the Lord.

We may not think or believe we deserve the good in our lives, but He does think, know that we deserve it because He knows who we really are and who we can become.

It’s not about what we think we deserve, it’s about what He knows we deserve because He was the one who paid the price for us to receive it in the first place.

That doesn’t mean there won’t be conditions that we have to meet, but the fact that it’s even offered in the first place is often the most wondrous thing of all.
