Daily D – Micah 7:18-20
Where is another God like you,
who pardons the guilt of the remnant,
overlooking the sins of his special people?
You will not stay angry with your people forever,
because you delight in showing unfailing love.
Once again you will have compassion on us.
You will trample our sins under your feet
and throw them into the depths of the ocean!
You will show us your faithfulness and unfailing love
as you promised to our ancestors Abraham and Jacob long ago. (NLT)
God is more interested in saving, restoring, and healing than we are in receiving these gifts of his grace, mercy, and unfailing love.
Another way of saying this is we live about as well as we want.
When we come to understand how God’s expectations lead to our best possible lives, everything changes.
It really is possible to get out of our own way.
It really is possible to live with purpose.
It really is possible to experience peace.
God delights in demonstrating his unfailing love. Praise becomes our morning routine when we discover this truth. Thanksgiving becomes our settled disposition. Expectancy shifts our focus from the way things are to the way things can be
This is good news for a Monday. What a great start to the week!
I will live in the broadness of God’s goodness and grace.
Our Father, it is almost a cliche but also an eternal truth: You are better to us than we would be to ourselves. Teach us today how to live up and into the good life you desire for each of us. Amen.

Romans 2:4 Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?
Acts 18:24-26 Meanwhile, a Jew named Apollos, an eloquent speaker who knew the Scriptures well, had arrived in Ephesus from Alexandria in Egypt. He had been taught the way of the Lord, and he taught others about Jesus with an enthusiastic spirit and with accuracy. However, he knew only about John’s baptism. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him preaching boldly in the synagogue, they took him aside and explained the way of God even more accurately.
