Hard Scriptures remind us that, even if we aren’t better, we are loved and forgiven.
I have a friend who recently quoted a verse of Scripture and that verse was pretty unpleasant.
I said, I don’t remember that in the Bible. Oh yes you do, my friend said laughing. You just don’t want to remember.
We need to ask God to keep us remembering the unpleasant and the difficult things he wants us to do. Is that because we’ll do it, probably not, but it will remind us to ask for forgiveness.
The hard things of Scripture are given, not so much to make us better, but to remind us that if we aren’t, he’ll still love and forgive us. That in itself will probably make us better.
I’m Steve Brown. You think about that.
