Second Chances

God puts the poor back on their feet. ~ 1 Samuel 2:8a (ABP)

When the Shepherd finds his lost sheep, you can be sure that he'll carry it across his shoulders as he goes on his way singing a happy song. ~ Luke 15:5 (ABP)

God gives the lost second chances.
Lord God, giver of second chances, I'm so grateful for the way that you love lost and broken people such as me. I am not nearly so gracious. Restore the grace in me so that I become more concerned about the needs of others than my own safety and reputation. I'm going to help others celebrate your love and kindness, too. Amen.
