Of course, you saw. You knew. But it was a surprise to me. I wouldn’t have picked her to be the child to take something from a store, even something that was being swept up in a trash pile by the teenager working his after-school shift. I would have assumed that was something the boys would dare to do. But once she opened her little hand to reveal those glassy blue mounds of temptation, it all made sense.
Be sure your sins will find you out!
Never doubt, what goes around comes around!
The Lord never slumbers nor sleeps!
Remind us, Father, that Jesus, in our place, endured sin's brutal assault, rendering our debt accounts closed. Show us yours hands, flinging the heavy stones of our trespass off the edges of your memory and into the depths of unsearchable waters. Wrap us in the peace of knowing that your greatest love overtakes our greatest need and lifts us forever above the shattered glass of the old man’s house.
For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more...
