#1wordwednesday / this will always {COST} more than you want to pay

the daily Starr blog Starr haigler 8

Early this morning with sleep still in my eyes, I opened up the Proverbs 31 First5 App to read the daily devotion.

Oh goodness. That first sentence shook me.

“Sin will always cost you more than you want to pay and take you places you never intended to go.” Lysa TerKeurst

Anybody been there, done that??

We do things we said we would never do.
We make terrible mistakes and live with the consequences for our actions.
We are all incredibly human and fall into traps of sin – big and small.
None of us, not one, is immune. Not me. Not you.

There is such a real  {COST}  for our sin.

How many days do I forget that truth?

The  {COST}  shows up in broken families, broken relationships, broken trust, broken hearts. We live these realities every day of our lives.

Here is the good news, friends: if we get real and own our sin, God is faithful to forgive.

There is hope found in the midst of our disastrous mistakes. There is grace, there is mercy, there is love – all from a heavenly Father that sent His only Son to die for our sins.

Jesus – He was the ultimate  {COST}  for our sins.

We can’t take that lightly – it’s a big deal.

Today’s full devotional reading from the First5 App really hit home for me and took us back to the story of David – all of the ugly sin, all of the very real consequences, all of the redemption and grace. You can read the full devotion here >>
