Cathy of Cathy Kennedy's Blog has started a new meme. Please be sure to pop over to her site and give it a go. :)
This can apply to a lot of things in life. Maybe bad things come along to make us feel threatened, and maybe they affect the overall health of your relationship with someone, but these bad things do not change who you are. You are still you. The guacamole doesn't suddenly become bad for you just because the bacon happened along. And if the person in your life prefers the bacon over the guacamole, then that is their misfortune!
On a spiritual level, the sins that enter our lives do not change the fact that Heavenly Father loves us and that He sent His son to die for our sins. Maybe we stole something; maybe we wished someone dead, or any number of other bad things. The gift is still there. He died to clean us of those sins, too. No matter how bad we are, His gift is still good.
This made a whole lot more sense in my head!
Here is the video that my husband David made for this post.
