I had an epiphany while taking a load of discarded clothing and household items to Goodwill this morning. For those of you who know me well you may think taking things to Goodwill was an epiphany! And you may be right.
Actually my light bulb moment was this. It seemed to me that God's mercy is like the netting under the trapeze artists at the circus.
When we miss the mark (sin) it is like missing the hands that are waiting and reaching out to catch us. Instead of the natural law of gravity spatting us onto the dirt floor below. The law of mercy is firmly in place to catch us! God is good.
