Focusing on the New

This weekend, along with thousands of other pastors, I focused on the new. One idea, I think, is  worth sharing here, so…

Lamentations 3:22-23 says, “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”

What I love about this verse, and what I pointed out this weekend, is the wonderful illustration that’s built into it. God’s mercy is new “every morning.” So, as the sun rises each day it brings a warm, bright reminder that God is merciful…as merciful as ever (conveniently that’s His character!) and we have yet another opportunity to enjoy His mercy and to live a godly life for Him–regardless of what occurred yesterday.

Enjoy the new,

Joe
