No Condemnation

Posted on: 7-15-112017

A few years ago, one of my nieces was sitting at the table in a restaurant and accidentally spilled her milk. She quickly looked up at her mom with wide eyes, waiting to see if she was going to be in trouble for making a mess. Her mom smiled and said, “Look at the masterpiece you made! You spill milk better than anyone I know!” My niece just beamed. She was expecting to be scolded and instead received praise. What a wise young mother! Accidents happen. No one is perfect, and we all make mistakes. And we have a Father who knows we are only human and knows that we are going to make mistakes along the way. He will not degrade us, humiliate us, or embarrass us when we make a mistake. He will lovingly encourage us along the way. He will help us clean up our “spills” with kindness and gentleness. Just as my niece is a blessed little girl to have such an understanding mother, we are very blessed to have such an understanding Father.

“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus…” Romans 8:1
