The Depth of God's Forgiveness

Grandpa Grizzly here,

The thought came to me this morning, God's forgiveness for those of us who think that he won't forgive is overwhelming to me. God forgives like no one else. Here, David is an adulterer, a murderer, and whatever other sins he committed in his lifetime and God still forgave him. In fact, he was described as a man after God's own heart. Another example is the Apostle Paul. He too was a man who sinned much. He persecuted Christians, had them thrown into jail, and yet God's forgiveness as Paul puts it, "he had unlimited patience for him the worst of sinners." So, today, as we go about our day today, reflect on the depth of that forgiveness when we are quickly ready to condemn ourselves. I know that I will.
