1. It isn’t that God struggles to believe our repeated cries of “wolf.” Rather, we struggle to believe God when he repeatedly comes to us with forgiveness and mercy on his lips.
  2. Jesus lives to intercede. So we needn’t bring him our feigned righteousness or our faux rehabilitation.
  3. Begin thinking of your church as a homeless shelter. See how it changes the way you see the weary pilgrim sitting in the pew next to you.
  4. Have you ever invited someone over to your house? Most of us have either invited someone into our homes for supper.
  5. Well, it is springtime! Just as you can always expect flowers to begin blooming, the days getting a little longer and everyone’s mood getting a little brighter, there’s something else you can always expect this time of the year.
