There really are few second chances. If any.
Which also makes our first chance…and first impressions…so incredibly important.
Oh, I know, we always say “God gives second chances” and “You’ll get another chance”.
And, that’s based on some truth…but it’s really not.
True, that is.
There are actually very few second chances.
We try so hard to do it all over again, but in the process, I wonder if we waste a lot of energy…trying to create a second chance that will never come.
Circumstances will be different. You’ll know more. You’ll know better. You’ll be experienced. Everyone around you will have changed. You’ll have a hard time getting all the factors aligned exactly as with the first chance.
It will likely never be the same again.
You can try as many times as you like. You can begin again.
God extends grace after grace after grace…far more than your sins will ever wear out…
But, second chance…maybe not.
You’ll just be disappointed trying to produce a second chance that never comes.
And, that’s okay. Don’t be dismayed.
A fresh start is always better than a second chance.
If that’s true…if there are few second chances…
And I’m fully convinced it is…
Don’t try for a second chance.
Make it another first chance.
Only do it better this time.
