Cracked Lives

I was sitting in a class, minding my own business when some icky brown stuff spilled all over my work books. It wrecked my notes.  I couldn’t figure out where it came from or what it was. No matter, I still had to clean it up.

Eventually, I discovered that someone on the floor above had spilled their coffee. It seeped through the cracks in the floor to accost me!

Our lives are intertwined. What you do or do not do affects me. If you speed you might crash into me. If I don’t vote the wrong person might get in to office. If your child is a bully, mine gets injured.

What cracks in your life affect the family, friends and even the strangers around you? Note that God never lets anything slip through the cracks.

What holes must we plug to honor God, ourselves and others?

God’s love is meteoric, his loyalty astronomic, His purpose titanic, his verdicts oceanic.
Yet in his largeness nothing gets lost; not a man, not a mouse, slips through the cracks. (Psalm 36:5-6,MSG)

Prayer- Give us the wisdom to recognize our failures and fix them, with your guidance.
